We want North Ridge students to take part in aspirational work experience placements to gain and develop skills for life. Work experience helps leavers get and sustain employment and play a full part in the community. We have developed a number of partnerships with key employers across Manchester.


Northridge High School is always looking to establish new links with local employers and voluntary organisations. Any business that is interested in working with North Ridge should contact the careers lead, Elaine Redpath. Elaine can be contacted on 0161 553 0200.


These collaborations benefit both students and employers in many ways, including:


-Developing our students employability skills

-Allowing employers work with the young people they might want to employ

-Building new skills within employees

-Raising the profile of businesses and organisations in the local community
