Partnerships with colleges, universities, voluntary organisations and businesses
Our Careers education programme provides students with skills, knowledge, support and experience of the world of work to enable them to make informed career choices. Woodside High School has excellent links and partnerships with colleges, universities, voluntary organisations as well as businesses to create opportunities to inspire our students and widen their horizons.
We organise careers events and aspiration days throughout the year where many of our partners take part, as well as workshops and specific projects to enhance our students’ awareness of a wider range of career pathways.
Colleges and Sixth Forms
We have an extensive post-16 education programme throughout Years 10 and 11. We work with colleges and Sixth Forms and invite them in to Year 11 assemblies to share information. We also work with them to develop departmental links and organise subject specific events.
We work very closely with a number of different universities for specific projects:
- University of Cambridge Murray Edwards College - Aspiration Days
- University of Cambridge - Insight Programme, Maths and Girls’ Physics Experience
- London School of Economics - Ace and Ace High Days, Introduction to Social Sciences Events, Black Achievement Conference
- University College London – the Brilliant Club, UCL Conferences, Bring your parents to the University Events
Our partnerships with voluntary organisations, such as IntoUniversity, The Girls’ Network, Stemnet/Stem Ambassadors and Inspiring the Future, opens up opportunities to motivate and inspire our students about the world of work and challenges stereotypes.
In order to raise the aspiration of our students and prepare them for their future work-life, we establish partnerships with both local, national, and international businesses.
We deliver work related learning to prepare our students for the world of work and help them to develop their employability skills through drop-down days and across the curriculum, working together with organisations such as Goldman Sachs and Marks and Spencer. We also work with businesses such as Nomura and RBS to deliver subject specific workshops as part of the IntoUniversity Initiative.
