How are employers involved?
Employers are absolutely critical to the design, delivery and management of Career Colleges. In order to ensure career-led education pathways, employers are involved from the inception of the idea for a Career College and commit time and resource to supporting, and in some cases, leading aspects of the education and work-based opportunities and industry projects set for learners.
Think of a young person…
…designing an App for your phone, to a specification set by an employer … training as a chef, under the supervision of a Michelin Star chef … involved in the construction of a landmark building..
None of this is possible without employers at the helm, providing practical opportunities for young people to develop their skills for employment, building their confidence and working to defined career pathways, alongside a broad core education.
