Careers Magazine for Pupils/Students –
We believe through meeting and engaging with employers at careers events in and out of school as well as obtaining work experience our pupils and students are able to make more informed choices about careers that they would like to work towards. Gaining knowledge of the different employment skills required in the world of work as well as knowing what qualifications they need to achieve their career goals is vital. Through having a strong network of local employers we hope to continue to motivate and inspire our pupils and students to achieve.
If you or your company would like to play a part in helping our pupils and students learn more about your line of work and the opportunities available we would love to hear from you, please contact our Head of Careers, Mrs J Powell – JPowell@Qegsblackburn.com and we will get back in touch with further information of how you can help.
