We need your support to offer young people online work experience. The summer is usually a time where young people work on their CV’s and personal statements, gain new experiences and learn about careers they want to pursue. We don’t want coronavirus to put a stop to these important life experiences, and we know that less privileged young people are at an even higher risk of losing out because of the pandemic.
We understand it’s a really difficult time right now, so we’ve made offering online work experience as easy as possible, whether you’re an organisation or a freelancer.
When is this happening?
– Placements will take place between Monday 3 August – Friday 7 August and Monday 17 August – Friday 21 August.
– You must register your interest by Monday 6 July.
What will I need to do?
– Support 1 – 4 young people for five days
– Attend a one hour training session on Google Classroom
– Attend a short interview with the young people ahead of the placement
– Create a variety of tasks (written, creative, administrative) that can be completed within five days
– Join a morning briefing on the first day and last day of the placement
