  • contribute to raising achievement; encouraging students to develop high aspirations and consider a broad and ambitious range of careers. Students are regularly in contact with guest speakers and industry specialists.
  • provide opportunities to work in partnership with employers, training providers, local colleges and others to provide opportunities to inspire students through real-life contact with the world of work. We use a range of providers to achieve this.
