Covid-19 has presented many challenges for education, including the opportunity for young people to experience the world of work through a work placement programme.

In response to this we've developed an online work related learning programme - Workit Careers. This resource will provide young people with a meaningful learning experience that directly correlates to the Career Education Standard, Work Placement Standard and BtC 4.

It's a flexible programme which can be completed online in school or at home. It is designed to be completed in 3 simple stages:

Cogs in head icon EXPLORE - Enables young people to identify their personal qualities, interests, skills and strengths in relation to careers. They will also explore a range of different career areas to decide which ones to research further in the next stage.

Pile of books icon PLAN - Enables young people to research specific careers in detail, build knowledge of the career sector and develop their key skills. Our team has curated and produced hundreds of resources, allowing young people to watch videos, read online information and undertake work related activities, giving them a comprehensive insight into their careers of interest. This research gives them the information they need to complete a Career Plan of Action for their chosen career.

Handshake icon WORK PLACEMENT - Complete a virtual or onsite work placement.

This programme will be available to all Workit users week commencing 18 October.
