Coventry Building Society Partnership

Coventry Building Society (CBS) and Foxford School have been in a working partnership together since 2021, designed to enhance the aspirations, confidence and career prospects of our students, and to complement careers guidance already being carried out in the school.

Coventry Building Society are passionate about creating ‘Better Futures’ for young people in the city in which they were founded. One of the most fundamental ways they can help our communities to be better off through life, is to provide opportunities.  Opportunities for our students to develop and grow, and ultimately to fulfil their ambitions and have a bright future.  They do this by providing a range of support to bring the world of work and employer expectations to life. This includes delivery of their award-winning Employability Skills programme, access to their Work Insights online work experience programme and summer internship, motivational talks, workplace visits, careers fair support, volunteer DIY projects to enhance the school, and an annual donation to support PSHE/careers related activities.

We’re very proud to be working together to help our students build the skills and confidence they need beyond school and help them maximise their potential.
