Education & Employers

We are a national organisation and we use pioneering technology and programmes to connect schools and colleges with volunteers from the world of work meaning our services are quick, free and easy to use.

Through our pioneering in-school programmes we:

  • Help inspire young people by giving them the opportunity to meet people doing a range of exciting careers to discuss why they love what they do and what educational route they took to achieve it.
  • Challenge gender stereotyping and show that traditionally ‘male’ or ‘female’ careers are possible for everyone.
  • Help schools or colleges find governors and improve governance – proven to help them achieve higher academic performance.
  • Show how apprenticeships can be an alternative to the traditional educational route.
  • Undertake research to provide the most recent evidence that supports what we do and informs policy-making.
  • Help employers embed volunteering within their companies – promoting staff motivation and social responsibility.
  • Give individuals wishing to volunteer the opportunity to give something back to their local communities by sharing with young people their enthusiasm and knowledge of their chosen career, or by using their skills to improve school governance.
