Employer Engagement & Key Partnerships
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.
Northampton Academy is a member of the SEMLEP Careers and Enterprise Network, part of the national Careers and Enterprise Company programme.
Through employer engagement at all ages, we ensure that young people conclude their education with the skills, competencies, knowledge, appropriate qualifications and attitudes desired by employers for both their own career development and economic sustainability and growth
