Andrew uses Inspiring the Future volunteers to support the careers provision and PSHE programme at Featherstone High School.
By inviting volunteers from a range of different industries and backgrounds into school, Andrew aims to broaden his students’ horizons and provide them with an insight into what employers look for when recruiting.
“For many young people the key adult role models are the teachers they see in school and their parents. This gives a relatively narrow view of the opportunities in the labour market. By having meaningful employer encounters it allows students to broaden their view and understand the multitude of different careers available to them.”
