Events

We can set up tailor made events and recruit business speakers from different sectors to enable young people to gain skills, knowledge and experience which will inform, inspire and motivate them.

The events which we can set up take place in school/colleges. We also set up workplace visits to enable children and young people to see businesses in action.

Our events are regularly supported by business representatives who have been trained and briefed by us.

The benefits to children and young people include:

  • Gaining ideas and insights from inspiring people who can share their experiences about their job and the sector which they work in
  • Motivating young people who don’t have a clear future direction and who may be feeling unsure and confused about what to do
  • Taking part in activities which allow them to shine and develop wider skills.

I can only relay the college’s thanks to you for all your help and organisation. It is very much appreciated and I thought you did a superb job! Very well organised and you were extremely helpful on the day."

“We would like to say how impressed the team were with the World Of Work trips, the days were the best that they have ever been and we can’t thank you enough. Please can we rebook for next year!”

"The children (and staff!) really enjoyed their day at Highcross. The workshops were interactive and gained the attention of the children. The questions in work booklets really helped the children to get in to the process of talking to staff at Highcross and encouraged them to think some great questions. The day helped the children to realise the variety of job opportunities available in the shopping centre.”

(St. Botolph's C of E Primary School)

"It was helpful for my future business planning to talk to teaching staff and youngsters about their experiences and needs and make them aware of the existence of my line of work. It was useful to network with other business people. I was very impressed by the organisation before and during the event. The behaviour of the young people was excellent."
