Employer - Please help

Dear placement provider

Thank you for taking a student on work experience. We really appreciate you taking a young person and helping to develop their employability skills. We understand the pressures on businesses especially coming out of a series of lockdowns. On behalf of school, we have a request.

As a not-for-profit organisation we keep our costs as low as possible but appreciate the financial burden this puts on schools.

Our visit to your company fulfils many purposes including:

For the business:

  • Advice on working with a 14 – 17 year olds, including specifics on each child
  • Suppling local and national guidance
  • Being available same day via email, phone or our website
  • Working through your requirements and formulating a contract for the child
  • Offering hints and tips regarding safe and practical placements
  • Answering your questions and signposting where required
  • Allowing access to our work experience portal
  • Issuing certification
  • Having a qualified person sat with you, to answer any concern there and then

For the child / parent:

  • The knowledge that the placement has been visited by an appropriate adult
  • The placement specifics have been considered, debated and recorded
  • The placement is suitable for the individual child and vice-versa
  • We have checked the insurance for that placement
  • We have viewed the exact location the child will work and can convey this
  • We can safely share information between the child, school and company

Our cost to the school is £35, this covers assemblies, parents’ evenings, the online portal access for all children, parents, staff and companies, certificates, 40-page workbook each, the physical visit, training and all administration.

School have asked if you would be prepared to make a donation (100% going to the school) of either £10, £20 or £35 per student.

With your permission we will publicise your business via the school, using their communication and social media channels and via our Countrywide networks and social media channels.

If you're happy to donate, please transfer your chosen amount to Proactive Young People CIC

Or please feel free to post a cheque to the Headteacher of the individual school - adding the students name on the reverse.
