Since 2006 Liskeard School and Community College has been employing apprentices, in particular employing students leaving from their sixth form. Not only does this help retain students but it also provides career opportunities within the local area. In the last couple of years alone six apprentices have been recruited in departments including Finance, Arts, IT and Science.

On the 1st of April all of the year twelve students took part in one of twenty four sessions offering careers advice in a variety of fields of employment.  Students actively engaged with organisations from the local community, ranging from doctors and medical professionals to chief engineers. 

Liskeard School & Community College has been running a Football Academy at the school to allow talented footballers to combine top level football in a professional atmosphere whilst furthering their education. Tailor made timetables keep the players at their best both on and off the pitch and most take the opportunity to play at an appropriate level outside of college life.

We were fortunate to have Professor Phippen from Plymouth university visit and spend 2 hours providing a lecture and tutorial on Technology.  He discussed the use of social media, such as Facebook and Twitter and how they are used as business tools.  He also discussed the impacts of globalisation on emerging markets to my our A Level Business Studies class.  This was great preparation for their final exam and also an opportunity to discuss studying Business at Higher Education level.

Year 12 and 13 Business students went to Bristol Cribbs Causeway where they attended a Revision Seminar provided by tutor2u.  There was guidance on exam skills and contemporary business scenarios were analysed. These included a strategic review of a theme park, a pet food business and a popcorn company.
