Building Connections With Expert Career Ready Mentors
Expert careers advice and links with top universities and employers is a crucial part of our Year 12 and 13 provision. This ensures that our students leave us ready to take up competitive roles within industry, join leading apprenticeship programmes and except offers from top universities. Part of this provision is our well established Career Ready programme which connects our students with leading industry professionals.
We are the only school in Leicestershire to offer the full Year 12 Career Ready programme and Career Ready introduces students to a valuable network of business links through a series of guest speakers, industry mentors, off site visits and employability workshops. Year after year our students tell us how invaluable their time on the Career Ready programme was and students even have a history of securing internships and jobs for the businesses they work with.
This year our Career Ready programme has had to take place virtually, however this hasn't stopped out students getting to meet their personal careers mentor online this week. Mentors include top industry professionals from PepsiCo, Jaguar Landrover, Black Horse, Seva Logistics, City Back, Mars, Arcadis, Morrisons, Silicon Valley Bank, Ofcom, Vortex Optical and Leicester University. All of whom will personally mentor our Career Ready students, imparting their knowledge and experiences to help them become industry leaders themselves.
