Class Careers is a social enterprise that gives your students direct access to employers at no cost to your school, as our service is fully funded by employers and sponsored by Babcock International. We recognised that depending on the location of your school and differing budgets of employers, some schools simply don't get visited and miss out on some important engagements. Primarily, Class Careers works with big employers who offer viable alternatives to university - such as apprenticeships or school leaver schemes - to inform your students about the different options available to them.
Class Careers allows students the opportunity to engage with an employer through the power of online tools. Our workshops are facilitated by a member of school staff and are delivered directly into classrooms across the country, giving your students the opportunity to chat with a company on a personal, one-to-one basis - getting them real answers to their questions, straight from the employer!
