What Is Facilitated Work Experience?
What are the benefits for your company?
How do your students benefit?
Learning about the company:
The students will walk away from this work experience with an in depth knowledge of what your company does, it's values, and how your employees work.
Channeling their energy positively:
These students have bundles of energy that our programme will channel into positive learning outcomes and we will make sure their excitement is nurtured
Gaining insights about their future careers:
Our programme ensures that the students leave your company with a better understanding of who they are and what they want to do with their careers. We teach them life skills that they can take with them long after the work experience finishes
How has it worked before?
|We run the course on sight so that students can experience the office and the culture in your company|
|There are meetings between staff and students and the TY's can get to know one another aswell|
|The course is contained to one room which maintains a sense of cohesion and avoids security issues|
|The rest of the course is run the exact same as the online course, with the programme tailored to the company we are working with. Students learn the same material as they would online, but the on sight option gives them a better idea of the companies culture and values.|
|Students log into the zoom and become familiar with the structure of the course|
|They get to know each other through the group work that they complete|
|They engage with learning through both individual and group tasks|
|The team is there to help with any technical difficulties the students may face, and to answer any other questions they have|
A meaningful, enriching Transition Year work experience
that truly benefits both the students and your company
***Finally, a TY work experience that is truly worthwhile for the students and doesn't disrupt company operations""".
What do you do when a class of 30 students descends on your company for work experience?
How do you make the best impression on future graduates?
It's important to get the word out about your company in the most positive way, so that bright graduates think of you when they start looking for jobs. You don't want a dozen teenagers going back to their friends saying they were bored out of their minds at your TY work experience.
How do you balance busy staff schedules and making time to show them around?
Someone will have to tell them about what the company does, how it onboards young graduates, and what careers they could have here... But that's time taken away from day-to-day activities.
How do you channel their interest and energy in a way that is productive, instead of disruptive?
How do you shepherd dozens of excited teenagers through company premises with a semblance of order?
#SavvyTeenAcademy offers a complete package of company-branded, fully customisable trainings
to make the TY work experience highly memorable and mutually beneficial.
With the #SavvyTeenAcademy TY work experience, your company will:
