Building relationships with schools benefits everyone. Evidence shows that engaging with employers has transformative effects on the employment outcomes of young people. These encounters bring the world of work to life, develop skills, and encourage young people to take control of their futures. Employees working with schools benefit, too. They can develop new skills which can help further their own career progression and employer-supported volunteering often leads to increased brand loyalty and employee engagement. If you are a business that can offer support please contact us.
