Raise a student's aspirations in 2016

Raise a student's aspirationsWe all start the New Year with good intentions but how many do we keep to? Why not make 2016 the year you make the most of your development days and give something back to your community by volunteering to take part in our Inspiring Young People programme.

We currently have 6 schools across London waiting for you to join one of our project teams.

You’ll be working with a team of cross-departmental civil servants to prepare activities which help the students understand the benefits of working for a living, gain employability skills such as team working and customer service and help them with CV writing and interview techniques - all in a fun and engaging way. You will then help deliver the sessions to a group of mostly Year 10 students over a six week period, (one afternoon or morning each week).

You’ll benefit from working with colleagues from other government departments while the students will learn from your experience and skills. The time commitment is around 3.5 days over a 6 to 8 week period including the half a day a week with the students and time for planning/travelling. We need volunteer team members to start in the next few weeks, going into the schools after February half term.

We are looking for team members in the following schools:

Up to the challenge? Then contact us stating briefly why you are interested in joining the programme and any relevant experience you have.

    I used to do something similar about 10 years ago in the North East working as a Business Ambassador. We visited schools and talked to pupils about Standards of Behaviour, preparing them for the differences between school and work.
