QKS Partners

We could not inspire our students and raise their aspirations within the world of work without the support of our superb associates, employers and education providers.

Our Partners speak in assemblies; act as mentors to our students; participate in our mock interview days; speak to individual classes to share their employment journeys or demonstrate practical skills, provide holiday work experience for our KS3 and KS4 students and work placements for our Sixth Form students; attend careers fairs or activity days, provide sponsorship and much more.

QKS Careers wants to continue to provide inspiration, information, advice and guidance, empowering students to make the best decisions about their futures.   Your support and input is pivotal in delivering an exceptional careers programme. 

Many thanks from all the staff and students at The Queen Katherine School.
