In our theory of change, young people meet a wide variety of real workers (inputs) for short conversations about their jobs and career journeys (outputs) to sharpen their career awareness, aspirations, employability skills and confidence (outcomes) for progression to jobs they will do well and enjoy (impact).
Since 2021, we have increased our impact through Virtual WorkOut sessions, enabling more employers to share their experiences directly with students through the classroom screen.
