“As Careers and Employability Champion here at The Nottingham Emmanuel School, I am delighted to be part of a community that is so dedicated to helping students achieve not just academically, but also in preparing them so fully for the steps that follow their education. I am on hand to discuss possible career ideas and the routes into them, universities or apprenticeship training. Students can also make an appointment to discuss employability skills such as CV writing, interview technique, personal statement writing and more. I look forward to working alongside you in future to ensure your child gets the most from their time with us.” Mr Ruane
Our Careers and Employability Programme is an important element of our broader personal and social education programme throughout the school. We are proud of our distinctive work in this area, which enables students to seek specialist advice, on a one-to-one basis, from our Careers and Employability Champion and from our Sixth Form Progress and Destinations Academic Mentor.
Careers and Employability Fayre
The annual Nottingham Emmanuel School careers fair welcomes parents and students from all year groups to attend for a relaxed, welcoming and helpful evening to gather information and engage directly with many different external providers in order to take the right steps for their future.
A diverse range of industries are represented on the evening to give students the most accurate representation of the scope of careers they can be working towards. In the past, we have worked with employers such as Barclays Bank, construction solutions company J. Tomlinson, law firm Freeths and armed forces representatives from the Army, Navy and RAF. As well as direct employers, many apprenticeship training providers have also been on hand to provide an insight in to the work based training routes in to different industries – The Nottingham Hairdressing Training Agency, the Construction Industry Training Board, accountancy and banking training provider Kaplan, 3aaa business and IT training, land based training specialists Dart Training and many more.
In November 2014 we successfully launched a bespoke, Sixth Form work shadowing programme for Year 13 students which is directly relevant to the student’s academic courses. The school is very much involved in working collaboratively with local and national businesses to allow students to receive the best mentoring support and to gain direct work experience placements from our competitive business partners at Deloitte and KPMG in Nottingham City Centre.
