The Career Colleges Trust has been bringing educators and businesses together for a number of years. During this time, we have learnt a great deal about the most effective strategies for partnership working. This is particularly relevant as England moves towards the implementation of T Levels, and the UK seeks economic opportunities post Brexit and pandemic. Career Colleges can enable a closer link between colleges and employers to bring opportunities and great careers for students.



In order to ensure students study career-led pathways, employers are involved from the inception of each Career College, committing time and resources to support aspects of the student experience including involvement in industry-led projects. Employers commit as little or as much time/resource as they have available.

A strong employer college relationship will help future-proof the skills required by businesses, as well as boosting aspiration among young people and promoting the many different roles available in a range of industries.

We are keen to engage with employers to ensure that Career College students are equipped with the skills, attitudes and behaviours they need to succeed in their chosen career. As an employer, if you get involved with a Career College you can secure an important pipeline of talent that your business needs to grow and develop.
