As part of the KTS Careers Curriculum, our students are visit employers to find out about local
industry and jobs and also invite them in to school to talk about their roles and past experiences within their job sector.
Contact with employers is really valuable for our students as they learn about opportunities that are
accessible for them and so raises aspirations for employment. It gives students a taster of the different jobs available in different sectors and so far we have identified students are interested in
hospitality, catering, engineering, retail, warehouse work, transport and art. We are trying to visit employers for each sector of interest. The students are enjoying them and have been asking
some excellent questions!
The students visited British Steel at Skinningrove, where they learned all about the steel manufacturing
industry and the jobs people do there. It was eye-opening for the students to get a glimpse inside industry. The students found out about apprenticeships and entry level routes into manufacturing and
engineering. Thank you so much to Steve Close and Martin for making us so welcome and to the chef for the delicious cakes!
Students visited the Galliford Try construction site in Brotton today as part of the 'Construction Open
Day' to raise awareness of careers in the sector. They made us really welcome and talked about the jobs that are available in the construction sector and the skills that are needed. The students
enjoyed their site induction and looking round the site at the new social housing project for warden supported accommodation for those aged 55+ in Brotton.
We are very grateful to Steve at MSH and the fabulous employers that have made us feel so welcome and supported us so far: British Steel, Hartlepool
College, Grinkle Park Hotel & AV Dawson.
