Creating virtual interactive encounters for young people with the world of work

Our evidence also shows that it helps broaden horizons and raise aspirations and challenges the stereotypical views that can be formed at an early age about people and the jobs they do based on their gender, ethnicity and social background.

we have pioneered virtual interactive ways to enable children and young people to connect with volunteers from the world of work across all different backgrounds and sectors. 

The sessions aim to motivate and inspire students to see the value in their school subjects, challenge stereotypes and raise their aspirations. Accompanied by polls and with Q&As as a major element of the activities, the sessions ensure an interactive and engaging learning experience. It enables young people to ask direct questions of the role models in real time and get their response.

We have created videos to demonstrate how virtual activities work.
