Information for Employers

The WOW Project is designed to support meaningful and quality careers interventions in Trust Partner Schools in North Tyneside. One of the key ways in which we do this is to engage with local, national and international businesses to bring to life the world of work for children and young people.

We organise many employer events in our schools and businesses and organisations can get involved in a wide range of initiatives. These include:

Career Speed Dating: Employer engagement event aimed at providing an opportunity for pupils to experience and understand a range of job roles, careers and sectors.

CareerZone: Employer engagement event delivered to allow students to experience hands on practical tasks performed in a range of jobs from a variety of career sectors.

Mock Interviews: Employer engagement event designed to prepare pupils for interviews with employers and further education providers by offering and interview and feedback on performance.

Careers Fairs: Employer engagement event aimed at preparing students with information on options, opportunities and choices for careers and further education.
