Edgbarrow School Employer Collaboration – Unblocking the Talent Pipeline
Fri 9 December 2016, 08:00 – 09:45 GMT
Edgbarrow School is a high performing school in Crowthorne with an excellent record of students going to some of the best universities in the country. As well as this academic success, Edgbarrow strives to nurture and develop students who have a wide range of experiences, skills and qualities that can complement their academic abilities. It is this aspect of our work which we wish to develop further and build links with a wider business community. We were delighted that the Independent newspaper rated us as the 4th best state school in the country.
Any association between Edgbarrow and business must have mutual benefit for your organisation and the school. For your organisation, being associated with Edgbarrow may be helpful from the point of view of contact and access to highly able and aspirational students where information and knowledge of your business might be very helpful for their future career decisions and planning. We understand that a ‘Talent Pipeline’ is of key significance to business and we are proud of our students and keen that they access the best careers possible. In addition, we can provide up to date information about qualifications and trends in education and publicity for your business. In return you may be interested in exploring greater opportunities for our students with regard to access to the business world with the possibility of work experience placements, training and internships. We are keen to engage with business in any mutually beneficial way from work placements, careers advice through to sponsorship of projects.
We very much welcome your views and input into how we can develop this initiative further and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership as we work together to guide our students and ensure they reach their full potential.
