CareermapLive were recently joined by Movement to Work for a live webinar which looked at work experience opportunities for your pupils. If you’re a teacher, career leader or career adviser then this is a must watch! We’re passionate about helping you to meet the Gatsby Benchmarks as outlined by the Careers Strategy. We recognise that understanding all the help and support out there can be challenging for schools and colleges which is why we want to help you to decipher what is what.
Movement to Work explored the proportion of young people not in employment, education or training and also looked at the unemployment rate for people aged 25 and over. Matt Harris, Head of Insights and Innovation at Movement to Work, also discussed how unemployment rates can be linked to social mobility.
What did the webinar involve?
This webinar was packed full of interesting facts and opportunities for young people. During the webinar there was an introduction to Matt Harris and Sharon Walpole, who engaged in a discussion about how pupils can find work experience (Gatsby Benchmark 6).
