Career Education Webinars - Inspiring young people studying at home during the Covid-19 crisis.
1-15 Clere St, Shoreditch, London EC2A 4LJ, UK
15 Apr - 15 Jun 2020
During these uncertain times, with school and business closures and more time spent at home, we believe it is more important than ever to raise the aspirations of young people, giving them the opportunity to explore options for their future careers. As such, Founders4Schools is moving quickly to adapt the way we deliver our services so that they continue to be available for your people across England and Scotland. Our in-classroom student-employer encounters will be adapted and become online interactive webinar student-employer encounters. This will mean that students continue to have the benefit of engaging with business volunteers despite their classes having been cancelled. The project will have a multifaceted impact on students, educators and volunteers: Impact on students: These interactive webinars will not only support students’ skills development and career readiness, they will also provide students with encouragement, inspiration and hope about their futures. Additionally, scheduling a webinar into their virtual school timetable will help add to a sense of routine and help prevent the negative emotional consequences which may come about as a result of school closures. Impact on Educators: our student-employer webinars will give teachers vital support when planning remote learning for their students and will enable them to provide high quality careers provision despite being out of the classroom. Our digital platform will enable them to book a Webinar quickly and easily so they are empowered and not burdened by this initiative. Impact on Volunteers: volunteers will benefit through feeling a sense of purpose having volunteered in Founders4Schools activities. Volunteering and giving back to young people in their communities will prevent the negative consequences to their emotional well-being which may occur as a result of staying at home or being furloughed.
