After signing off from school or college for the summer holidays, the weeks ahead could be the perfect time to get a taste of work experience or volunteering.
We know how hard it can be to find opportunities for young people to get access to volunteering and work experience, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, and so we have created a new booklet as part of our #FOROURFUTURE work to help get you started with some ideas and inspiration around how you can make those opportunities happen.
Along with practical tips and suggestions, the booklet looks at how to manage work experience safely as we ease our way out of lockdown and how you can make the most of your experiences when applying for a job or further education opportunity.
We hope you find it useful, and would love to hear what you think of it or how we can improve or add to it.
Over the summer we will continue to advertise opportunities we hear about using the #MAKEYOURSUMMERCOUNT, so follow us on social media – see where you can find us on page 15 of the booklet.
We hope this pack gives you some useful pointers on how to get started, but we would love to hear what you think of it, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts.
