Help us shape the workforce of tomorrow: Offer a work placement today!

Each year, Inspire! supports around 4,000 young people aged 14 – 19 in North and East London to gain first-hand experience of working life by undertaking an unpaid work placement with a local employer.

Could you help us by hosting a student for a week, two weeks or even for one day per week over several months?

Your support would go a long way in shaping a young person’s future by:

! Developing their employability skills and understanding of what it takes to enter the world of work

! Allowing them to explore their career options and aspirations first-hand rather than on paper

! Building their confidence and self-belief that they can succeed in today’s challenging job market.

It’s very simple to get involved. We’ll visit you to carry out a health and safety check (Employers Liability Insurance required), help you identify appropriate tasks and a simple job description. We’ll also give you guidance on how best to support your student and be available to provide advice and support throughout the placement. You’ll have the opportunity to meet your student in advance if you would like to do so.
