Information for Employers
We know that employers in the UK have concerns about skills gaps and the work-readiness of some young people – Help us to help you!
The Walnuts School is a member of the SEMLEP Careers and Enterprise Network, part of the national Careers and Enterprise Company programme.
Our aim is that through employer engagement at all ages, we ensure that young people leave our school with the skills, competencies, knowledge, appropriate qualifications and attitudes needed by employers for both their own career development and economic sustainability and growth.
We need your help

We would love to hear from you, if you are able to donate some time to come and speak to our young people about the work that you do or you would like to invite our young people into your workplace for a tour.
