My Week of Work On Demand
My Week of Work On Demand
Join The Careers & Enterprise Company for “My Week of Work” where School pupils will still be able to gain insight into the world of work despite the lockdown thanks to plans from Oak Academy, Learn Live and The Careers & Enterprise Company.
The CEC, Oak and Learn Live have worked in partnership to create a whole week’s worth of content aimed at preparing young people for the world of work. Pupils will be able to choose from five key economic sectors in which to gain insight. They will hear from employers, learn about the businesses and complete virtual work tasks. The content has been developed in partnership with employers, school leaders and careers education experts.

Leading employers from across the country have agreed to virtually open their doors to young people
Young people will have the chance to gain insight into life in major public and private sector employers from across the country. The employers cover key industries including health and social care, creative and digital, engineering and manufacturing, energy and renewables, and construction.
The lockdown has helped people realise that schools do so much more than teach the curriculum. That includes helping them to prepare for life after school.
For young people, the economic impact of the lockdown will last long after schools reopen in September. We know schools, colleges, employers and careers guidance professionals are doing just that despite the lockdown. The work with Oak and LearnLive can contribute to that amazing effort. The country needs a long-term plan for how to respond to that. But in the short term we’ve got to do all we can to help prepare young people for the world of work.
