Dendrite Schools Connect - Inspiring the next generation


Careers channel

We are connecting businesses with schools to enable them to promote their company’s latest innovation, directly offer work experience placements, careers advice, outreach volunteers, industry specific resources and much more.

Wouldn’t it be great if you had already got to know your future talent base, before they apply to join you?

 

Work experience and career guidance is a great way of introducing young students to the world of work and helps them explore different career options. Finding and arranging high quality work placements and real life interactions for both student and business, however, can be a time-consuming process. The challenge for schools is to efficiently find out which businesses are happy to offer work experience placements.

 

 

 

What do schools need ?

The Government’s careers strategy sets out that every school and academy providing secondary education should use the Gatsby Charitable Foundation’s Benchmarks to develop and improve their careers provision.

For example:

  • Every student should have multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace.
  • From the age of 11, pupils should participate in at least one meaningful encounter with an employer every year. A ‘meaningful encounter’ is one in which the student has an opportunity to learn about what work is like or what it takes to be successful in the workplace.
  • Teachers should link curriculum learning with careers. STEM subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of future career paths.
  • By age 14, every pupil should have had the opportunity to learn how the different STEM subjects help people to gain entry to, and be more effective workers within, a wide range of careers.
  • All students should understand the full range of learning opportunities that are available to them. This includes both academic and vocational routes and learning in schools, colleges, universities and in the workplace.
