Notre Dame Sixth Form College is committed to employer engagement and developing closer links with local and national employers. It is important for students to actively engage with employers and to be aware of employer expectations and the wide range of opportunities post Notre Dame. Notre Dame has been allocated a designated Enterprise Coordinate to support engagement with local employers and apprenticeship providers.

A wide range of opportunities have been made available to students including:
- Business mentoring
- Speakers from the world of work
- Work place visits and work experience placements
- Careers fairs and career networking events
- Mock interview days
- Access to creative online resources and labour market information
- Help with basic careers management skills like CV writing, CV building, job searches and job interviews.
- Regular job vacancies and bulletins
Students interested in progressing into employment after Notre Dame can choose to move into an employment tutor group during U6. They will follow a one year programme committed to developing their employability skills, job search skills, and understanding of the labour market.
If you are an employer and would like to develop links with Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form College please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to promote part time and full time vacancies, arrange work experience and invite you in to college to deliver workshops and on site activities.
Students seeking employment, apprenticeships or school leaver programmes need to book a careers appointment to discuss the range of options available.
