Employers Careers Education Information

Plan for the long term by making connections with us today. Students at The Thomas Aveling School will benefit from access to your knowledge, expertise and support, and you'll benefit by cultivating the attitudes and skills you need for the future workforce.

What's in it for you?

  • You can inspire talented young people to work for you/your sector
  • Make a positive impact whilst raising awareness of your company. You'll be giving something back to your local area, while boosting your company's profile
  • It's great for staff development. Employees who do talks at schools or mentor work placements will grow in confidence and gain a sense of achievement in supporting young people as well as developing their planning, communication and presentation skills
  • You will get the chance to network and make contacts with other businesses

Ways to get involved:

  • Prepare future employees for the world of work by taking on a leaving student as an apprentice, school outreach is a great way to spot future talent
  • Pass on knowledge of your sector through talks, workshops and workplace visits - all the while raising the profile of your business
  • Offer a work experience placement
  • Help students be “work ready” through activities like mentoring, mock interviews or CV/application support

Companies that have already supported our careers education programme include MHS Homes, BAE Systems, Medway Council and the DWP among others. Give back, get involved and raise your profile!
