F4S 20 Sept 2016 Alderley Park Work Experience Consultation
Tue 20 September 2016, 12:00 – 14:00 BST
A roundtable discussion with business leaders to discuss an exciting way to transform the ambition and attainment of students, and ultimately better prepare them for the world of work.
We are testing the creation of a mobile app that students will use to find and apply to local growing companies that might be in a position to offer a work placement.
Work placements at an early age prepare students (aged 16+) for the world of work much better than anything else, and pave the way for businesses like yours to tap into a pool of talented, work-ready young people. Anything is good – from 2-5 days at Easter, half term breaks, summer or a part-time job in term-time.
At the roundtable, which will be led by Sherry Coutu, Founder and Chair of Founders4Schools, we'd like to hear your reaction to our thoughts.
We value your opinion and feedback, and hope you will be able to join us on 20th September.
