Post 16 make local business links

On Monday 15th October over 70 local businesses and employers attended Garforth Academy for a Breakfast meeting to hear how they could work in partnership to support our students. They were extremely keen to engage with us to offer a range of up-to-date careers advice, support and opportunities to our students increasing their understanding, knowledge and employability in terms of the ‘World of Work’.

We intend to harness the expertise and knowledge of these individuals to help all of our students develop high aspirations and consider a broad and ambitious range of careers. Activities, Workshops and work placement opportunities will be filtered out to students in Years 7 -13, as and when appropriate, to enhance their career guidance and experience throughout their time here at Garforth Academy.
