Teachers

Teachers at Crestwood link classroom learning to careers by making links to related professions and using work-related examples within their lessons.

Teachers also make links to career-related skills by highlighting and developing soft skills and employability skills in school.

If you are a teacher at Crestwood, please click here for more information on how you can embed careers into the curriculum.

Employers/ employees

If you are an employer/ employee from any profession and you would like to support our students in developing their employability skills and knowledge of careers pathways then lease contact the careers lead, Miss Dredge by emailing: ldredge@crestwood-s.dudley.sch.uk .

You can do this by offering work experience placements or volunteering to do a talk/ write a testimony for students. This could be done by attending one of our careers breakfasts sessions. See more information about this here.
