Workplace visits and masterclasses are an exciting way for you to engage with the Career Ready programme. It is often the first time our students have entered a workplace and it’s an experience that can have a deep effect on them. Also, hearing their reactions to your familiar day-to-day environment can make you see your own business in a new light.
Visits usually start with a tour of the workplace followed by a workshop. In these workshops you can discuss anything from employability skills (such as CV writing or dressing for success) to the organisational structure of your business or wider subjects such as corporate social responsibility.
Workplace visits and workshops are a simple but effective way to bridge the gap between school and the world of work.
