The school is actively engaged with a number of businesses across London and the UK. We provide numerous opportunities for our students to engage and develop their employability skills in school and offsite. St Augustine’s has committed a specialist member of staff who has led on over 40 business engagement events across 2018/19 for a range of students. We are very proud of this on-going provision, which won us a Business in the Community Champion Award -presented by Prince Charles, and really feel this is something St Augustine’s can offer above and beyond an engaging curriculum and active school life.
As members of our Sixth Form, students will gain these experiences to strengthen university applications, develop training opportunities and step directly into employment. Our Work Related Learning Manager, Mr Ydri, is committed to these programmes and describes some of our provision below.
We are members of renowned national schemes such as Business in the Community, The Tri- Borough Employability Passport, and Centre of Excellence in Finance Programme. Our business partners Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC), Lloyds Banking Group, Keepmoat, Marriott and Santander have enriched our curriculum through the delivery of exciting workshops and events which our students find extremely useful.
