Employer Engagement

Hazel Grove High School and Sixth Form recognises the value that employers can provide to students’ education and decision making about their future.

We therefore welcome offers of support and involvement from employers across all industries and employees from a wide range of business organinsations. We host several Careers events throughout the academic year, including mock interviews, career talks and an annual careers fair in October each year; employers, apprenticeship/ training providers and representatives from Further and Higher Education are welcome to get involved.

So why not get involved – We have launched “Give an Hour”, aimed at bringing our curriculum to life.


Give an Hour – Support our Learners

Watch the video about “Give an Hour”

We already benefit from a large number of volunteers who give up a little bit of time to come to give presentations to our students, talk about the world of work or simply discuss their job, career or pathway. Please take a moment to watch the short introduction  video, linked above and access the online form below, to let us know your details and how you can get involved.

At this point do not worry about times and dates. We will share our menu of events and formats for being involved with all those who sign up to volunteer.  It could be a one off discussing the importance of managing people in a Business lesson, looking after children in Health and Social Care, Policing in Sociology using Maths in your everyday work or working as a Chef at a Hotel.  It could be anything such as working at the Trafford Centre, at Manchester Airport or at the NHS. We’d love to build a database of contacts that different curriculum area could look at to help bring our curriculum to life.  You could email me us at school or volunteer an hour here, using the online form: FORM


Careers Fair October 2020

Our 2019 careers fair had over 50 representatives from different colleges and businesses.

We secured the support of several local and national businesses that came in just to offer advice and information about careers in their particular field. This included NHS, Manchester Airport Group, Nat-West/RBS, ARUP, UK Fast and Marriot Hotel Group as well as a host of other Businesses.

If you are a local employer and would like to highlight the opportunities that our students have to work in your line of work, please get in touch with me to visit our school or attend our next careers fair – graham.street@hazelgrovehigh.co.uk


Work Experience 2020 – Can you help?

Next July our Year 12 students will be going out on Work Experience. A vital part of our curriculum enrichment. We desperately need placements where a student can work for a week. This could be local in Hazel Grove or the surrounding area

All risk assessments and health and safety will be conducted by our external provider – Changing Education Ltd. They will provide you with all the support needed as an employer. It is a great opportunity for businesses and organisation to give something back to the community and help shape the future job market.
If you feel you may be able to help out and offer something get in touch with us Graham.street@hazelgrovehigh.co.uk We can talk you through the process. If you are interested we need to know some simple information as shown in the form below. This could be copied back to us in an email or as an attachment.

Thank you – Mr Street (Head of Business and Careers Enterprise)
