Employers can support the careers learning of students by:
• Providing work experience placements, work shadowing and work visits.
• Taking part in encounter events, such as careers talks, ‘I Love My Job’ events and speed networking.
• Careers fairs and sector tasters.
If you are an employer who could offer workplace visits, careers talks or any form of careers advice, please contact our careers lead Mrs Turton.

Would you like to be a Career and Business Mentor? As part of our wider careers programme we are always looking for professionals/former learners to support us. Are you able to act as a mock interviewer or a mentor? Could you offer careers talks?
If you would like to be involved in the rich pool of local talent we are assembling, please contact our careers lead Mrs Turton who will be keen to discuss volunteering opportunities.
