Due to unprecedented demand, businesses across D2N2 are being given another opportunity to find out more about an ambitious work experience programme aimed at providing 3,000 placements for young people throughout the D2N2 region.
North Derbyshire Careers Hub and the D2N2 Enterprise Adviser Network have teamed up with the national charity Speakers for Schools to develop a Virtual Work Experience solution to ensure that all schools across D2N2 have the chance to provide their students with a virtual work experience opportunity.
Speakers for Schools was founded in 2010 by ITV’s Political Editor Robert Peston with a mission to level the playing field for young people. The charity aims to end educational inequality by giving access to the same networks as the top fee-paying schools in the UK through inspirational talks and broadcasts, employer insight days and work placements, and meaningful discounts, and life-preparing opportunities.
