Working with Schools
According to the Careers and Enterprise Company, the best way to improve young people’s future outcomes is by giving them high quality interactions with employers. The more interactions with employers the greater the impact.
We use our wide network of employer and professional contacts to create focussed, impactful careers networking sessions for young people:
We work with a school to identify students who will most benefit, particularly those who are at risk of future unemployment.
We send parents/carers a briefing about the careers inspiration activity their child is engaged in.
We meet each young person for a one to one preparation session where we explore their strengths, interests and ambitions and prepare them for the employer session, including their personal presentation and preparing the questions they want to ask.
We organise the Meet the Professionals session in school.
We invite employer and professionals from a wide range of sectors, including creative, finance, construction, design, sports and digital. We target sectors relevant to young people's interests.
We run a follow up and reflection session with each young person where we identify key learning points and develop a plan for next steps. This can be shared with the school careers adviser.
We can also provide individual support for work experience placements.
We can support at risk students with careers coaching and personal development using our Story of Me model.
