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.

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.

All workshops are designed to deliver Gatsby Benchmark 5 and some also support curriculum learning and contribute to GBM4. Employers will tailor content to the age group specified in the advert so that teachers can chose the right option for their students.

To book a FREE workshop for your students please use the booking form provided.
