Employer Engagement

Wellacre recognises the value that employers can provide to students’ education and decision making about their future. We therefore welcome offers of support and involvement from employers across all industries and employees from a wide range of business organisations. We host several Careers events throughout the academic year, including mock interviews, career talks and an annual careers fair; employers, apprenticeship/ training providers and representatives from Further and Higher Education are welcome to get involved.

So why not get involved? We have launched “Give an Hour”, aimed at bringing our curriculum to life.

We already benefit from a large number of volunteers who give up a little bit of time to come to give presentations to our students, talk about the world of work or simply discuss their job, career or pathway. Please take a moment to watch the short introduction  video, linked above and access the online form below, to let us know your details and how you can get involved.

 

At this point do not worry about times and dates. We will share our menu of events and formats for being involved with all those who sign up to volunteer.  It could be a one off discussing the importance of effective leadership in PE, writing publications for a newspaper in English, working as an interpreter in French, using Maths in your everyday work or working as a Chef at a Hotel.  It could be anything such as working at the Trafford Centre, at Manchester Airport or at the NHS. We’d love to build a database of contacts that different curriculum areas could look at to help bring our curriculum to life.
