For Business

"Every school should engage fully with their local employer and professional community to ensure real-world connections with employers lie at the heart of the careers strategy."  - Department for Education, April 2014.

Premium Partners for Schools is a vehicle that enables schools to build dynamic, strong and fruitful relationships with business in the local area and beyond. The Partners provide an invaluable wealth of knowledge and skills, and can help build bespoke projects with schools in the Network. Students of all ages are given opportunities to interact with business leaders and develop skills that employers so keenly look for.

Castle and Marlwood schools are linked to a network of over 100 businesses and your company will be able to reach out to over 2500 students and 1700 parents with a catchment area that extends from Charfield and Wotton-Under-Edge to North Bristol.

Inspire, raise aspirations, develop employability skills, mentor and encourage, enable informed choices.... these are all words that describe the impact you can have on our young people.
Contact Sarah MacIsaac on 01454 862516 to find out how you can make a difference to the young people in your community.
