For business...

How does Premium Partners work?

We often hear business leaders claim that young people are not prepared for the work place and that schools are not equipping them with the skills they desperately need.
 
We believe that schools cannot be expected to address this alone and that Businesses have an integral role to play in the education of young people in the UK. Bristol CathedralPremium Partners provides a way to do this successfully.

Do you have problems recruiting young people with the right soft skills?  Would you like to be involved in shaping and developing an Employability curriculum for children from years 7 to 13? We are developing, with business, a brand new Employability Curriculum to ensure that our young people are fully prepared for the world of work. This curriculum will sit at the centre of a new enterprise secondary school for Bristol for 2018, http://cathedralenterpriseschool.org , in addition to the Bristol Cathedral Choir School which is the most academically successful state school in Bristol.
