Employer Engagement

The C&M College Network has an Employer Engagement Team dedicated to developing collaborative links with external employers and organisations to ensure that students have various opportunities to understand and experience the world of work and put their theoretical learning into practice.

Our OFSTED feedback relating to our employer engagement provision was rated highly.

Currently we have over 1250 external collaborative employers / organisations who work with us throughout the year to enhance student learning experiences with practical application.

All students, both A level and vocational, are given the opportunity for a minimum of a one week work placement arranged specifically to meet their needs. Employers deliver masterclasses relating to specific elements of the sector and the criteria of the study programmes and offer taster days and visits.

We have employer insight days and Apprenticeship presentations to provide information to prepare for progression.  Our employers sponsor our annual Student Awards Celebration, present subject awards and contribute to our recognition of student success.
