Employers & Training Providers

In order to support our vision of helping our students find their purpose, we need the support of both the public and private sectors. The careers programme is the bridge between education and employment. Therefore our students need to understand, what skills and qualifications are required to be successful in the work place.

There are a number of ways you can engage with us at Archbishop Blanch. (The below table details how.)

For more information or to arrange a meeting, please call school or contact Antony Stagg via email on antony@kareers.co.uk
