Support young people like Joyce

Meet Joyce. Joyce is from Merton in London. Like millions of other young people in the UK, she struggled to access opportunities to experience the world of work during the pandemic. 

Fortunately, Joyce was able to secure a virtual work experience placements with Caxton Associates and the Bank of England through Speakers for Schools that allowed her to start building her skills and boosting her confidence and her CV for the future. She now plans to work in finance and feels ready to make her dream career a reality.

Since [doing virtual work experience], I’ve learnt so much. I think it’s so important for everyone to get work experience because you need some sort of foundation as to how to build your skills” – Joyce, 16.
