Employer Engagement

At St. Hild’s Church of England School we are continually developing our links with local employers.

Research has proven that 4 or more meaningful encounters with employers increases the employability of pupils by 86%.


Our pupils have the opportunity to experience workshops, assemblies, presentations, mentoring and activities all supported by business volunteers.

The programme planned allows pupils to discover knowledge of different careers, different pathways they can chose and the reality of a working life.


If you are an employer and would like to become involved with supporting our pupils please call the school on 01429 273041 or contact the Career Lead, Mrs Sangster at sangster.g@st-hilds.hartlepool.sch.uk


It is our desire to achieve Gatsby Benchmark 5: encounters with employers and employees, and so all of our pupils must have involvement with employers at least 7 times between Years 7-11.
