Working In Partnership

Working in Partnership with The Careers & Enterprise Company

Here at Coppice Performing Arts School we work closely with the Careers and Enterprise Company to ensure, that our Careers Programme evolves to meet the GATSBY Benchmarks. This has resulted in us being allocated an Enterprise Coordinator (Carol Codner) and an Enterprise Adviser (Belinda Madzima).

Regular meetings are held where we are able to discuss and review the provision provided and the needs of the students. This enables us to ensure that our students here at Coppice Performing Arts School, are receiving the best possible Careers Programme to meet their needs and allow them to leave us with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the world of work.
