We have joined National Careers Week with a visit from Newcastle under Lyme College and their resytled American School Bus.  Year 10 students were able to visit the bus and the speak to staff from the college about apprenticeship courses and take part in some tasks.


Year 10 student Joe was really impressed, "I wasn't sure about my options after school as I'm interested in engineering.  Speaking to the staff today about apprenticeships which are applicable to me and possible career paths was really helpful.  I have a better idea now if what I want to do when I finish school."

Leading the way with Business Links
19.01.2017

The Grove School is leading the way once again for education and business partnerships and has been presented with an award for outstanding Work Experience provision for their students.  The Work Experience Programme provided for students from Key Stages 4 and 5, was praised by staff from Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Education Business Links after a recent review of the working practice of their programme. The prestigious Award for Excellence in Work Experience was presented to staff at the school for the third successive year.   The Grove remain the only school in the county to have received it. 
 
Karen Jones, CEIAG co-ordinator at The Grove said, “Our Work Experience programme involves students being encouraged to find work placements in the local community and further afield.  Students and tutors liaise with employers prior to the placement which gives the students the confidence needed to enter the workplace.  We are immensely proud of the students and would like to thank the local and national businesses who continually support our programme and ultimately our students.”
 
Elaine Miller from Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Education Business Links, was quick to praise the school’s good practice, “We were unanimous in our decision to award The Grove School with the award.  The programme demonstrated outstanding good practice.  We were particularly impressed with the robust organisation and embedding of Work Experience into the curriculum.  It is clear that Work Experience and IAG continue to evolve at the school and that the staff team are highly committed and have an excellent working relationship.”
 
Headteacher Sonia Taylor said, “The Work Experience Programme is a vital part of our curriculum and gives the students the opportunity to have a taster of the world of work.  They return to school and to Grove College re-energised by their experience, having grown visibly in confidence and having learned invaluable skills.”
