The Norwood School

Employers, Colleges and Universities

We frequently work with employers, universities, colleges and apprenticeship providers.

Please do get in touch if you would like to work with us, perhaps as a visiting speaker, at one of our Careers Fairs, or at one of our Options or Sixth Form Evenings. We have an excellent track record of working with outside agencies, but are always keen to establish new and exciting links – especially with employers and employees from new and developing businesses who can add depth to our knowledge and understanding of current workforce trends.

Our Careers Guidance Strategy incorporates provision across all Key Stages – from Yr7 right up to the Upper Sixth. (please see Strategy Doc adn policy on Careers Page).

We offer a range of Level 2 courses at GCSE and BTEC for Year 10 and 11 – please see our current offer under the Options section of the ‘Teaching and Learning’ tab on our website.

Our current A Level and level 3 offer includes traditional ‘academic’ courses in facilitating subjects as well as a wide variety of successful vocational pathways including the Arts, IT, Business and Sports. We frequently invite employers into targeted lessons to share their career pathways with the students, to offer them advice about further educational and beyond or to simply, explain their job, how they arrived at it and what it entails on a day to day basis. We recognise the value that these encounters with employers and employees have as an integral part of our broad and ever evolving careers guidance programme.

If you are an employer, college, university, apprenticeship provider and would like to get in touch with us here at school or with a particular subject area then please contact:
