Here is what Zoe Anastasi, Community Manager Wilmott Dixon, has said about working with us.

“Working with St Bernard’s on their careers and employability sessions has been amazing. Their organisation and communication of events has been fantastic. They are accommodating to new ideas and think outside the box. We are currently delivering a 12 week employability programme to their construction students. Not only has this been great for our own people, who have found the interactions inspiring and rewarding, but it has given the students a real insight into the world of work from real people. The students have pre-prepared questions and will also ask questions after each presentation. I would highly recommend any employer to take the opportunity to work with the school. It’s an amazing chance to inspire the next generation and inform them about career paths they may not have considered.”

Now is a good time for parents of current Y10 to start thinking about what their teen’s next steps are after GCSE . The Parents’ Guide to What’s Next provides a summary of all options Post 16 , so parents know what choices their teens have and what to bear in mind when making those decisions. Even though summer 2023 seems a way off, teens will be making many of those decisions during the forthcoming autumn and spring terms. Click in the link below for the booklet.
