At Queen Elizabeth High School, we value the contribution that business and employer links can make to support the wider personal development of our students.  Research shows that students who have meaningful encounters with employers throughout their school life are less likely to progress as a NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training). The rich tapestry of employers across the North -east region can play a significant role in ignite sparks of aspiration and motivation for the next generation of workers.

Do you think your company could support the careers programme at Queen Elizabeth High School?

If the answer to the above question is yes, perhaps you could support us in some of the following ways:

  • Develop bespoke workshop sessions for pupils set in our school setting. This could be thematic talks, project initiatives or competitions
  • Encourage your employees/apprenticeships to share their experiences with our pupils.
  • Attend and/or assemblies throughout the year or during National Careers Week during March.
  • Contribute towards our extra-curricular programme (lunchtime or after school).

If you would like to get involved in our careers programme please contact Andrew Hedley (Assistant Headteacher for Personal Development at Queen Elizabeth High School) on 01434610300 or email
