At SJR we are very fortunate to be supported by many local and national businesses and organisations, who help our students to put their learning into context and understand more about the world of work.

Employers can support our students in a number of ways:

  • Coming to speak to a class or a course group
  • By offering work experience placements
  • By having a stand at our Careers Fairs
  • By informing us of relevant vacancies that we can promote to our students
  • Supporting our Apprenticeship Club to understand what employers are looking for and how to prepare for recruitment processes.
  • Mentoring programmes


Here are the details of our Careers Programme Overview for 2022-2023:
