Inspire! provide work experience, work-related learning, enterprise and additional support programmes for young people aged 3 – 24. We work with schools and colleges in Hackney, Camden, and Islington, as well as supporting individuals. We are sometimes able to partner with schools in other areas of London on request.
Connecting young people to employers in their local area and the City of London is at the core of our approach. We work with over 1000 employers and over 2000 employee volunteers each year, who help young people to develop the skills and understanding needed for future success.
Considering the pandemic, we have developed a range of new virtual programmes to replace our in-person models, so that schools and colleges can continue to provide crucial work-related learning.
Research from Education and Employers shows that the more exposure to employers young people have, the less likely they are to be unemployed as young adults. By raising aspirations and helping students make informed choices, we help schools and colleges meet the Gatsby Good Career Guidance Benchmarks.
