This week, Future Foundations was proud to be a part of George Green’s School ‘Bring Your Job to School Day’.

An incredible FF Team went into George Green’s School in East London to work with whole year groups and business volunteers, delivering the Career’s Fortune section of the day.

Ella Simms, Course Director, and Mandy ┬áTang, Coach, facilitated the ‘Careers Fortunes’ game-show style career quiz with students from Year 9, Year 10, Year 11, and Year 12.

Good way of introducing ideas of employment and career choices to young people.

Business Volunteer

Students and business volunteers were paired up in teams to work together and to come up with answers to the Career Challenges Questions.

By working closely together with the students, business volunteers had a great opportunity to engage with students by providing them with advice and guidance on employability and raising student awareness to the different routes into careers.

Thank you to all the business volunteers for providing their experience as a valuable resource for young people to draw on, and to all at George Green’s School for arranging the Careers Day.
