At Kettering Buccleuch Academy students receive careers advice and guidance through a variety of forums from dedicated sessions as part of the Global Learning Programme to individual events such as our Primary Careers Day and our Secondary Careers and Higher Education Evening.
Recognising that our links with industry and business are important to the development of our students, and to their awareness of the opportunities that are available to them, we have developed a network of companies and providers that offer support and guidance to the academy. A long standing relationship with our Business Enterprise Partner, Knights of Old, affords our students access to many aspects of the world of work and an appreciation of the skills being sought by employers.
Our ultimate aim is to prepare and equip our students for the responsibilities and opportunities that they will encounter in their careers and assist and support them in making the right decisions for their futures.

Employer Engagement – Help us to help you
We know that employers in the UK have concerns about skills gaps and the work-readiness of some young people.
