Benfield's Business - Education Links

 
Do you want to be working alongside a secondary school that has 'The EDGE?'
 
Do you want to be employing young people who have characteristics that make them stand out from the crowd?
Do you want to support the future of our local community?
If the answer to any of these is 'YES' then we need you on board.
 
What is it all about?
 
As part of the National Character Education Agenda, Benfield School have been selected to take part in The EDGE Programme and this is supported by a formal NCFE qualification.  We are the only school in the North East to offer this unique programme.
The EDGE has recently been launched in our school and has been designed to develop attributes that prepare students for adult and working life and the focus is on:
 
Leadership / Organisation / Communication / Resilience / Initiative
 
What are we looking for?
 
We want to establish links and a business-education partnership with local companies who have a strong commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.
We are looking for offers of expertise, financial support, guidance, sponsorship, marketing, volunteering, training - the list is endless!
We want to offer the best future for our students and with yoyr help we can do this.
