Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
Fledglink’s mission is to be the most helpful and supportive platform for young people as they journey through the final years of education and into work. Their free mobile app has been providing young people with free access to personalised career guidance, resources and opportunities online since 2018. The app does this in a number of ways:
- Build their first online professional presence and digital C.V.
- Personalise their careers advice
- Discover more about themselves through integrated personality quizzes and strengths profiles
- A jobs board solely focused on entry-level positions, apprenticeships, internships and work experience opportunities
Fledglink also run workshops for young people and educators focused on self-development and work readiness skills.
