Employers, Education & Training Providers

The Bulwell Academy welcomes the opportunity to work with a wide range of employers and education / training providers. Having employers engage with our pupils helps to inspire and transform the attitudes of the young people in our care. Bring the World of Work into the classroom can add tremendous value to the curriculum being taught. Likewise with Further and Higher Education, we encourage students to have access to the latest information to allow them to make informed choices. Young people need access to quality experiences in order to prepare them for the opportunities, experiences and challenges that the future world of work has to offer.

In return we believe you will gain great satisfaction from working with us and inspiring the next generation. 

There are numerous ways you, your employees and your company can be involved and could be the key to unlocking in a your person.

Examples include:

  • Assemblies / talks to share information and opportunities
  • Be part of one of our dropdown days and deliver a hands on workshop on your sector and routes into it.
  • Offer a work experience placement at your business premises.
  • Get involved with a department and produce a real life brief / project for the students to complete and for you to judge at the end: linking your industry to their learning brings the curriculum to life.
  • Volunteer to mock interview some of our Year 10s an 11s or look over their CVs and provide feedback from a real employer.
  • Hold a CV workshop from an employer’s point of view.
  • Welcome a group of pupils on site for a tour to view first-hand the working environment.
  • Help champion specific issues and challenge barriers in the workplace around gender stereotyping and disability.

The purpose of this section is to help you clarify the benefits that you as the employers/employees will seek to gain by working with The Bulwell Academy.

By getting involved you will be supporting the future workforce and helping to broaden the minds of the young people in our community. You will also be able to develop new skills for your staff, forge community links and build a positive profile for your company. You will be thoroughly supported prior to and throughout your visit to us to ensure we maximise the use of your valuable time. Should you wish to express an interest in supporting us, please contact Mr Aveyard.
