We have a whole host of companies and organisations from all different sectors that regularly support our Careers programme. Employers see Careers activities as an excellent way of engaging with their future workforce and advertising the benefits of working with their company. Giving students the opportunity to meet with local employers face to face and ask them questions about their profession and their workplace can really open their eyes to the different career choices out there.  

Learning to Work in partnership with Slough Aspire will host a two day Careers Event, which will provide a platform for local stakeholders Year 9 onwards, to engage with around 60 employers, training and education providers and specialist advisers who will be on hand to offer information and practical help on getting ready for the world of work.
