At Hayle Academy we are busy growing your employees of the future. We would welcome your help to raise their career aspirations, develop their employability skills and learn more about the exciting industries in Cornwall.
Being part of our business support network will provide you moments of great satisfaction but striving to make a difference can also be an exciting challenge! Having employers like you helping to inspire young minds and transform attitudes through a range of activities and opportunities is the foundation of an excellent careers programme as set out by the Gatsby Foundation’s eight Benchmarks of good practice and the Careers and Enterprise Company.
Hayle Academy has the benefit of key business volunteers who work with us on a strategic level, encouraging the development of our careers programme and connecting us to the business community across the county. This role is recognised nationally as an Enterprise Adviser (EA) and they are part of the Cornwall Careers Hub community of support driving the connection between careers education and the business sector. For a list of Cornwall businesses who are volunteering in the EA role please visit the CIoS Careers Hub website.
