As a business, how can you support the education system, what local students need to help them develop the right skills before entering the employment market. This session is designed to breakdown the myths on what is required, and some support can be as little as 1 day per year! Overall the support required could be broken down to, but exclusively,:

  • Running masterclasses around employability skills
  • Speaking about their workplace/jobs in their sector in assemblies
  • Offering tours around the workplace to school groups
  • Work experience/internships of various lengths.
  • Supporting ages from Year 7 through to Year 13.

There are number of schemes locally, and we have 3 amazing guest speakers to hi-light each area, so you can decide what would suit your business.
