Schools and Colleges

Introduce the world of work to your students.

We work with schools and colleges to provide pupils with opportunities to develop their employability skills and learn about how they can get ready for the world of work. 


Youth organisations, Pupil Referral Unit's or other education providers can also refer young people to our programmes.

Giving young people a taste of life outside the classroom really helps them develop the kind of skills they will use in life and work… It is all about opening up as many avenues and opportunities for young people as possible.

Employability workshops 

Our free half-day workshops are for young people eligible for free school meals. They are ideal for students in Year 7 - 11 (P7 - S4 in Scotland), giving them a great start on their journey to become work ready. 


During our sessions, students will hear inspiring career stories from various professionals, take part in a team challenge and work on their presentation skills.


The workshops:

  • Introduce students to transferable employability skills
  • Build awareness of different careers, job options and pathways, including apprenticeships
  • Provide insights into what employers are looking for
  • Connect students with prospective employers
