With the growth of digital and the increase of artificial intelligence, employers are increasingly looking for people who are innovative, creative and adaptable, and who have the ability to apply these skills and attitudes, irrespective of the role.
Our Company Programme provides the perfect opportunity for young people to develop these skills in an engaging and challenging way. This development of ‘human’ intelligence, not only enriches their academic learning , but also provides a strong foundation for their futures.
Our evaluation approach aims to understand to what extent young people have developed their skills, knowledge and attitudes against key employment attributes. We ask students, teachers and volunteer business advisers to reflect on the difference the programme has made to the skills of young people through the completion of pre and post -questionnaires at different times of the academic year.
