Preparing our students for the world of work

2014 has seen another fantastic year for the Careers Academy at CAVC with nine successful Internship opportunities’ sourced within leading businesses.  These included Barclays, Lloyds and British Gas during the summer months.  Each business via the Careers Academy has ensured meanwhile learning experiences for each of our students.

This was the first year Barclays had come on board with us and accepted their very first Internship student.  Tracy Bird our Careers Academy Co-ordinator has been able to sit around a table with the Head of Barclays Cooperate to develop further links with them. They are now a member of our Board and we are excited at the prospect of growing our partnership with them.
