At Kingsthorpe College we are looking to build partnerships with local and national businesses to offer our students opportunities and experiences that will help them to develop their employability skills. The business partnerships will also allow our students to grow in their confidence and discover hidden talents and interests, all skills which are valued in both the workplace and in higher education.

As every business is unique, the engagement can be very specific or you may wish to support more generic projects such as those mentioned below:

  • Mock interview process – All guidance and interview questions will be provided.
  • Careers Talks – Could you hold an assembly or a small group discussion?
  • Dragons Den style competitions – Come and be a judge on a panel for our student competitions.
  • Careers Fair – Raise awareness of your business or profession by holding a stall.
  • Tours – Could you give a tour of your premises to a group of students explaining more about your profession?

If you are a company who is interested in working with us on collaborative projects or the company your work for have a Community Engagement programme, we would really like to hear from you!

Please contact us by emailing our Director of Operations, Julie Ricketts on, by calling on 01604 716106 or by completing the form below.

We look forward to hearing from you.
