If you teach Post 16 or a head of a Post 16 year group, here are a few ideas to help you. Don’t forget the best events need around a 6 /8 weeks lead time if volunteers are to be invited successfully.
Our volunteers have specified what areas they are keen to help in and many have offered HR skills so why not invite them to help in the following ways:
- You can use the system to ask for work experience placements
- Work experience prep – you might consider a couple of volunteers coming into a special assembly to provide tips and hints of how to get the most out of work experience. The guides on our portal can also help with information.
- Workshops on employability skills
- CV workshops
- Subject talks (how I use (name of subject) in my job)
- Mock interviews
- Oxbridge mentoring
- Job shadowing
- Apprentice talks
