The Greenwood Academies Trust has implemented a programme of careers education and inspiration that goes above and beyond the statutory requirements. Sian Gresswell explains

When the new leadership at Greenwood Academies Trust came on board they recognised that raising aspirations and broadening horizons was vital to our young people.

We have high levels of Pupil Premium and economic challenges in several of our communities so it is crucial for us to make sure our pupils have access to great role models and that we support them into employment, Apprenticeships or give them a path into university.

We didn’t just want to concentrate on areas of challenge though. The leadership, under Wayne Norrie and his team, wanted to raise the profile of careers and employability across the trust as a whole. They created a role to support this across all academies in the trust and it really appealed to me.
