Bringing the world of work into schools in a virtual era

With The Careers and Enterprise Company – 28th January 2021

Tried the Inspiring the Future portal in the past but struggled to find locally available volunteers? Worried about the tech side? While the pandemic has narrowed young people’s lives, virtual activities widen the breadth and range of volunteers students can access and even alleviate some of the logistics of hosting visitors once you have the know-how. Schools across the country have told us that virtual encounters mean they can have everyone from a marine captain to a BBC Sports producer on their doorstep.
