Connecting Students and Employers

Connecting Students and Employers

Businesses have a vital role to play in partnering with schools and colleges to raise ambition and improve performance.

By providing young people with work experience and becoming involved with careers guidance, employers can spell out the value of the skills and knowledge developed at school and open students’ eyes to career opportunities.

Research studies suggest that young people particularly value information on jobs and careers when obtained in a real workplace and through contacts with working people.

There are a number of ways in which you can help our students:

Site visit – let our students visit your organisation and see how it works.

Work experience – introduce students in Year 12 (16/17 years old) to working life within your organisation.

Assembly and classroom visits – join a class at the start of a lesson and chat to the student about how the subject relates to the working world.

Provide apprenticeships – could you provide an apprenticeship scheme to those students wishing to venture into the working world through this route?

We also work closely with our designated local Enterprise Coordinator from the Careers and Enterprise Company, to ensure that our careers curriculum is rigorous and comprehensive and meets the needs of every child in our care.

The Careers and Enterprise Company would like to engage more with parents too so, if you are interested in accessing information about career pathways, apprenticeships and employers in the Hampshire and Surrey area, please visit their Parents Facebook page to join their facebook group, where new information well be regularly added and can be found by searching posts/topics.

For further information, or if you are business that would like to engage with us in delivering our Careers, Education and Guidance programme, please contact Mr Richard Czepukojc by email r.czepukojc@sjb.surrey.sch.uk
