We ensure that students are able to continue to develop towards their end career goals during their time at the College. A key part of delivering this is the close partnership working that we have with local schools. Our Schools Liaison team work alongside school careers teams to provide students with access to information, advice and guidance to help inform their careers decision making. We share our careers programme and offer an event programme for students to be able to have access to further and higher education to enable them to make the right choices for their chosen career.
One of the key activities that we run are the Year 10 Taster Day programmes that have been run at ESC for many years, proving a valuable way of ensuring students gain insight into the variety of vocational courses available with routes into careers. There has been consistently strong take-up from local schools with expansion over the years and excellent student and teacher feedback.
