Neale-Wade Academy would love to hear from local businesses who would be willing to support our students with meaningful encounters in school or host a workplace visit.
There are many ways you can share your experience and help build our student’s knowledge of employability skills, the workplace, the labour market and job search skills. At Neale-Wade Academy we have a whole host of activities you could join in with and we are always open to new ways of developing our future workforce if you have ideas of your own!
Examples include work experience placements for our 12s, small group workplace visits, mock interviews and assessment centres, Tutor time talks, presentations Careers Fairs and Employability Days.
If you are able to support for any of these then please contact me on
Hparks3@neale-wade.org or 01354 606021
