We are keen to build working partnerships with employers to support our students as they begin their journey in the world of work. We currently have successful links with the following employers:

What our links with Employers offer

Our work with different employers offers us a wide variety of different outcomes.

Employers offer us:

Visit opportunities so pupils can see what it is like in a real life working environment. This can range from a short tour to a more extended or repeated visits.

Coming into Mayfield to talk about job roles, supported internships and personal experience of getting into the world of work.

Supporting our young people to learn about employability skills, interviews and preparing for work

Work experience placements. Again this could be job shadowing, a singular visit or repeated visits over a period of time. All work experience placements are supported by skilled staff members. Placements can be individualised, paired or group placements.


If you feel you can support our students or us as a school in anyway please do get in contact.
