Every student will be encouraged to set their sights high for their future, regardless of their background or individual circumstances. In order to help them prepare for university or the world of employment, we will provide regular careers guidance in school. As well as this, we have access to support from the VIA Partnership. VIA is owned by Lancashire’s local authorities, including Blackburn with Darwen, and provides award-winning careers information, advice and guidance.
We have good links with leading local employers in the professions, business, industry and the public, community and voluntary sectors. As well as addressing the students and answering their questions about what it’s like to work in their field, we will look to them for exciting work experience and mentoring opportunities.
