Careers Leader - Mrs Richards


Here at Meole Brace, we want to connect with employers and careers programme providers to work together to create meaningful encounters within the world of work for our students. Data shows that a young person who has four or more encounters with an employer is 86% less likely to be unemployed or not in education or training and can go on to earn up to 18% more during their career.

Our goals

To provide at least four employer and workplace encounters for our students. Work with employers to guide strategic careers planning for the good of the local community, whilst benefitting Meole Brace students (mentoring, enterprise competitions and work-related learning). Embed the curriculum and celebrate an ethos that places careers and enterprise opportunities at the heart of our school.
