We are seeking individuals who can offer an overview of their competencies through Virtual Work Experience. Our work will target Yr 12 (16-17yr olds) with their route to employment and taste of your world of work.

What will you be doing?

Could you do a pre-recorded talk to students to start off their Virtual Work Experience?

Create a video to Introduce your team - PowerPoint presentation and pre-recorded videos. 

Share videos of your work place/environment. If your situation has changed during COVID 19 it will be hugely impactful to share a before COVID video and a during COVID / working at home video.

Can you set a task that will last the students 1 – 2 hours, with a worksheet attached for students to answer questions and submit back to you for you to provide feedback. For example, this could be based on an upcoming project that you may be working on or a problem solving activity based on the effects COVID 19 has had on your business.

For our final day your business could have a pre-recorded top tips and help video for the students.

You may already have some corporate video’s so this would certainly be a starting point for us.
