The value that employers bring when they engage with schools is well evidenced. Research shows that young adults who have greater levels of contact with employers whilst at school are significantly less likely to become NEET (not in education, employment or training) and can expect, when in full-time employment, to earn up to 18% more than peers who had no such workplace encounters. New research shows that engagement not only allows employers to add value to schools and the lives of young people, but that young people and schools in turn give huge value to employers. In addition to the hard business case for engaging with schools there is a soft business case.
Whether an entry-level employee or CEO, dairy farmer or architect, we are keen to form a partnership with you to provide our students with meaningful encounters with the world of work.
We look forward to working with you in the future. Please contact Mrs Alison Spencer, [email protected], to explore the opportunities available. Please see the information on the Parents Careers page for an overview of our careers programme.
