Volunteers support young people who are currently excluded from mainstream schools, through career-focused workshops/mock interviews during this morning event.

Detailed description

Get Work Ready day with Key Stage 4 students (ages 15-16, years 10-11) at The Academy of Central Bedfordshire.

Assist with simple recruitment activities and share personal experiences. Ideal for those seeking a unique school experience. Engage in small-group career-focused activities and discussions, with activities lasting 20-30 mins. Students may be initially hesitant but gradually become engaged. ELSA workshops promote networking, skill awareness, interactive tasks, mock interviews, and aspiration elevation. The day is supportive, with staff guidance.

Volunteer involvement is vital. Your impact is immense, inspiring and preparing students for the workforce. We are supported by community and business volunteers for these Get Work Ready events.

We will have a Zoom call prior to the day to talk through what to expect on the day.
