Helping young people carve out careers at Boulevard Academy
At Bluestorm, we like to share our skills and knowledge. That’s why, as part of National Careers Week (NCW), we’ve been giving our support to a local academy to help develop its careers advice programme.
Businesses play a pivotal role in giving young people opportunity to explore their career options. As part of our commitment to social value, we’ve become enterprise partners with the Boulevard Academy, under the national scheme run by the Careers and Enterprise Company – an organisation which inspires and prepares young people for the world of work by creating connections with employers.
Our Senior Account Handler, Paul Ewen, has been appointed as the school’s Enterprise Advisor and will be working voluntarily with the Academy to support them in delivering careers days, work experience opportunities and additional business and industry contacts locally.
“It’s a fairly new collaboration, so it’s been great timing to kick off our activity during National Careers Week. We’ve worked with staff from the academy to develop a range of careers activities to feature in their NCW programme for this week. We’ve attended assemblies for each year group of the school to introduce them to Bluestorm and give the students an idea of what we will be doing in the future. This will include work experience opportunities and help in setting up and running their summer careers fair.”
