At Evelyn Grace Academy, we are keen for our students to engage with the careers curriculum in practical ways; we believe students gain a lot from external speakers who can offer different viewpoints, insights and experiences. Because of this, we are interested in bringing people and organisations into the school to inspire our young learners and bring areas of work and study to life.
This page has details of all the volunteering opportunities available; if you'd like to get involved with any, please contact us.
All volunteers will receive a full briefing session.
You can see further details of our careers programme here.
Career Insight Talks
We offer a programme of Career Insight Talks to provide our pupils with valuable insight into career sectors to inform their next steps. We typically look for volunteers who can deliver a short talk about their career journey and answer questions about their role.
Work Experience Opportunities
We look to provide our students with exposure to top employers through work experience opportunities.
We typically look for volunteers who can provide an insight into their business and role through in person visits and work placements. These can vary in length from half day visits to 2-week placements.
We run CV workshops to educate students on how to write a high-quality CV.
We typically need volunteers to give up 30-minutes of their time to review a student CV, offer feedback and ask them questions to prepare them for the world of work.
