Meet our alumni

In this section you will get to hear about some of our fantastic former students.  We will share their journey into the world of work or their next steps in education or training.  We are very proud of our alumni and that many give time to come back and talk to our students.

Are you a former student from our school?  We’d love to hear your story and perhaps feature you on our website or invite you to call back to our schools and talk about your career pathway.  There are lots of ways to do this but have a look at our Employer Area for some idea and do get in touch!

Leicestershire’s Labour Market

We think Leicester and Leicestershire is an amazing place to live and work.   As one of the most vibrant areas in the East Midlands there is a lot to shout about.  In this section we will start to share information about different industry sectors, careers pathways, types of jobs and lots more for both parents, carers and students.

Quick fact…did you know in Leicester and Leicestershire over 99% of local businesses are micro (0-9 staff), small (10-49 staff) or medium enterprises (who employ 50 to 249 staff).  If that sounds interesting you could visit the World of Work website which has much more information on the local labour market with easy to read facts and figures.

We run lots of inspirational events for our students

From year 7 onwards students get lots of opportunities to think about what their next best steps will be.  As part of this we will be shining a spotlight on events we put on with guest speakers from the world of work and education.  We will share the impact this can have on helping our students think about their futures and what has inspired their careers education journey so far.  You can also see the journey from year seven onwards here
