EDGE is the link for schools to work with the Alconbury Weald development and its associated businesses. We work with secondary schools in Huntingdonshire to ensure their students have a greater understanding about what career opportunities are available in the area, coupled with an awareness of the required education, skills and attitude to make them ready for work.
How we work with schools
Raising the awareness of students and providing information on potential career opportunities in growth sectors – and the necessary qualifications/training required.
Embedding work experience within the curriculum to ensure young people leave school with basic ‘work-ready’ skills, so future employers have confidence in their ability to enter the workplace.
Holding events that give students the opportunity to speak directly to potential employers – about what they look for in their staff and what their employees can expect in return
(e.g. salary, training, career progression etc).
Providing independent careers advice – including top tips for CVs and interviews.
EDGE provides tangible links between education and employment and is keen to work with secondary schools and education providers to develop projects that help young people make the transition from education to employment.
