Employers / Providers
Poynton High School recognises the value that employers and education providers can provide to our students’ education and decision making about their future. Please contact Mrs Bibby if you or your organisation would like to engage with the CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) at PHS.
We actively recruit employers, both local and national, to contribute to our Careers Programme and welcome offers of support and involvement from across all industries. Employer volunteers can be involved in careers events throughout the academic year, including mock interviews and CV reviews, career talks and careers learning through the curriculum. You may be able to offer an off timetable activity or visit to your workplace or establishment. You could talk to small groups of students and your specialist knowledge may be able to support a subject area, showing real world applications for the students learning.
We are active participants in the Macclesfield Pledge, The Pledge Partnership, part of the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership, puts employers at the heart of inspiring, informing and communicating with the next generation of employees in Cheshire and Warrington. To find out more please follow the link above.
Work Experience - Year 12 students are allocated time to undertake self-placed work experience in the summer term. This is a core part of their study programme. Students are encouraged to source a meaningful work experience placement that is either relevant to their future career plans, or will develop their employability skills. If you would be able to offer a student a placement please contact Mrs Bibby.
Apprenticeship training providers and representatives from Further and Higher Education are also regularly invited to contribute via assemblies, Careers Fairs and Student Development Day activities and our students are taken to participate in Careers and Industry Taster Days. If you have an upcoming event that our students could benefit from, or would like to host a visit from our students please contact Mrs Bibby. Please also see our Provider Access Procedure and the Careers Learning Journey on the Careers Homepage for further information on the possible opportunities to connect with our students. If you would like to discuss opportunities to connect with our students, don't hesitate to contact Mrs Bibby.
