PwC's UK-wide ‘New World New Skills’ Social Mobility Work Experience takes place in August.

PwC works with partner organisations to invite Year 12 or equivalent students to apply to join their paid week long experience.

Students must meet their social mobility criteria of attending a state school and attending a school that is above the regional average in terms of the number of students eligible for free school meals or; are or have been eligible for free school meals or; would be the first member of their immediate family to attend university.

Skill sessions take place in PwC's offices and virtually, including:

  • Local business area sessions (including auditing, consulting and risk)
  • Problem Solving
  • Speaking and Listening
  • Anxiety and Resilience

Students are set a group project which leads up to a showcase of what they have learned and proposal presentation to the rest of their local students and PwC ‘Dragons’.

The programme focuses on four of the essential skills with specific steps of the Framework as success criteria, spanning the Getting Started and Intermediate stages:

  • Listening to others
  • Speaking clearly and effectively
  • Completing tasks and exploring problems
  • Contributing to a group.

Students benchmark themselves against the Framework at the start and end of the programme. In 2021, all skill scores improved, with the highest progress made in Listening and Speaking.
