Discovery Workshops

A Discovery Workshop is a 1-2 hour session which enables live employer interaction with large groups of young people virtually, aged 11-13 or 14-19, via our Google Meet platform within a classroom setting or whole year groups.

Please note these sessions can only be booked by an educator or school and are not open to direct applications from students. If you are a young person looking to apply for work experience opportunities, please visit our Work Experience page to see what’s on offer and apply directly.

Open to students from across the UK (unless otherwise specified), employers will deliver a variety of light touch content about their organisation, sector, career pathways, job roles and hot topics – including presentations, video content, panel discussions, virtual workplace tour, Q&A sessions.

Discovery Workshops can also be designed with pre and post-placement activities that help to deliver against Gatsby Benchmark 5 and can also support curriculum learning and contribute to Gatsby Benchmark 4. Employers will tailor content to the age group specified in the advert so that teachers can chose the right option for their students.
