Employer Engagement

This section is aimed at employers who wish to engage in supporting the careers provision and careers events at St Mary’s Catholic School.

We recognise and value the importance of working with local employers in order to support our career provision at the school.

We are keen to establish firm links with employers who will be able to enrich our students’ education, inspire them to want to achieve their best and to show them new possibilities within the world of work.

At present, we engage with over 100 different employers through work experience placements for our Year 10 and 12 students.

On average we have over 15 employers and other education providers, including local colleges attend our careers carousel every year. Another 20 or more professionals attend our Mock Interview days for Year 11 and 13 students, and many more employers come in at various times during the academic year to deliver talks and workshops to students. We welcome support from all employers specifically if you can offer work experience placements, apprenticeships or traineeships.

We welcome employers in to school to discuss their sectors with students during National Apprenticeship Week and National Careers Week to show and sell students their field of work.

We are always seeking employers to support our events including:

  • Careers Carousel
  • Year 10 and 12 work experience placements
  • Mock Interview days
  • Enrichment Week.
  • Careers talks
  • National Apprenticeship Week
  • National Careers Week
  • Science Week
  • Green Careers Week
  • Employability talks, CV and Interview Skills Workshops


If you are able to help us with any event please contact our Careers Leader Jo Knight at  FAO: Careers.
