Schools

WorkOut Sessions

In Primary WorkOut and Career WorkOut sessions, children and young people meet and interview multiple employees in a carousel of short conversations about their experiences of work, providing first-hand careers information, stimulating work aspirations and developing vital speaking & listening skills.

Young people work out:

  • what jobs are available and how to get them
  • which jobs they like or don’t like the sound of
  • how to speak with adults they don’t know.

Employer/ees workout:

  • what it’s like for young people in school today
  • why they do what they do at work – typically returning to work feeling more positive about it
  • how to make it easy for young people to understand their work – sometimes itself a workout!

Schools benefit from:

  • quality employer encounters with impartial careers information about local jobs, as required by Ofsted.
  • student engagement – having a chance to ask questions and have them answered openly.
  • getting to know local employers – when guests feel valued, teachers can approach them easily.
  • community cohesion – evidence of Social, Moral, Spiritual & Cultural (SMSC) development and preparation for Life in Modern Britain, as required by Ofsted.
