Careers Hub

The world of work is ever changing. At The Newbridge School, we believe that all students are entitled to high quality and effective careers education, information and guidance.

At the heart of all we do is the drive to develop our students as successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

Woven through our Newbridge Curriculum, our careers programme aims to give students the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to unlock a wide range of future possibilities.

The future success of our students will contribute to future financial security and career satisfaction and help to prepare them for a wealth of endless possibilities and experiences. These factors will not only contribute to the personal wellbeing of our students, but also the wellbeing of their families and the local community.

We endeavour to support the ambitions and goals of all of our students and assist them in being the best they can be in whichever path they choose.

We provide impartial guidance and advice on further education, training or employment across KS3 and KS4 and involve many outside agencies such as employers and education providers.

Our Careers Leader is Laura Drakeley. If you have any queries about careers, higher education or work experience please contact her on 01530831561 or Ldrakeley@newbridgesch.uk 

Our Careers Link Governor is Amy Cook

Leicestershire's Labour Market

We think Leicester and Leicestershire is an amazing place to live and work. As one of the most vibrant areas in the East Midlands there is a lot to shout about.  In this section we will start to share information about different industry sectors, careers pathways, types of jobs and lots more for both parents, carers and students.

Quick fact…did you know in Leicester and Leicestershire over 99% of local businesses are micro (0-9 staff), small (10-49 staff) or medium enterprises (who employ 50 to 249 staff).  If that sounds interesting you could visit the World of Work website which has much more information on the local labour market with easy to read facts and figures.

We run lots of inspirational events for our students

From year 7 onwards students get lots of opportunities to think about what their next best steps will be.  As part of this we will be shining a spotlight on events we put on with guest speakers from the world of work and education.  We will share the impact this can have on helping our students think about their futures and what has inspired their careers education journey so far.  You can also see the journey from year seven onwards here.
