At Cloughwood Academy we continue to develop strong links with local employers. We work with them in our Careers programme in various ways.

Some employers come into school and talk to our students about their businesses. They discuss what the job is like, along with what skills and qualifications are desired.

Some employers help to carry out mock interviews with students and provide useful feedback.

Students complete a week of work experience in Year 11 and many local employers facilitate this by organising for them to work in their business.

Some examples of these local employers that we have good careers links with are listed here:

Cheshire Police                                              

Chester Zoo

Manchester United



The Bren Project

The Co-op

DC Lomas

Greenbank Garage

Miller Construction

Cadburys World

Edgehill University

Thelwall Motors
