How they work

Taking place at the workplace, or in your school or college, a volunteer from the world of work will present one of our 12 sequential masterclasses to a small group of students.

Volunteers & Employers

How they work

Whether it’s a one-off, once a year or more regular activity, you will find that delivering a masterclass is the perfect way for you to broaden the horizons of young people in your local area and get them interested in your business or industry.

Masterclasses can be delivered in your workplace or in a local school or college. 

Each masterclass takes approximately an hour to deliver and we provide a range of templates and guidance documents to make things even easier for you.

The choice of masterclasses is wide – from networking and communication to personal branding and interview success – and you can choose the session best suited to your expertise.

Delivering masterclasses has been great because it’s given me the opportunity to share something which I’m passionate about to an audience who are eager to learn. It gives you the chance to go down memory lane as it reminds you of your own journey to get to where you are today.
