Learning in Lockdown - Virtual Work Experience

Social distancing measures to combat COVID-19 have meant that onsite construction work experience placements are not taking place. 
With your help, we can give a whole year group of children the opportunities a full week of inspirational work experience.

And as a part of this, you can generate a significant amount of social value for your organisation.   
We’ve created the Learning in Lockdown virtual work experience programme. 

Working with an incredible team, we’ve put together a week-long STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) based work experience that is 100% digital, delivered online with the support of some fantastic industry experts and accessible from home.

We’d like to ask for your help.

Demand for this initiative has quite simply blown us away. We've had over 280 schools register their interest, equating to roughly 27,000 young people who have expressed an interest in joining the programme. Giving them the very best experience is our number one priority, and this is where you can get involved and support these teenagers.

Every contribution of just £30 provides each young person with an opportunity that will be formally recognised with the Silver Industrial Cadets Award. This covers the administrative cost to deliver the programme, moderate and accredit the students' work on completion.

Like many of you, we are a social value-orientated team, and so every £1 donated to this not-for-profit initiative will generate 4.5x more in terms of social value to the community. 

We’d really welcome any and all contributions from industrial and personal supporters. The more we raise, the more young people can learn about the rewards of a career in construction.
