Supporting UK schools, colleges and universities to provide insight into the world of work

As a school, college or university you can invite a volunteer role model from the F4S Platform to come into your classroom free of charge.

  • Support your school in meeting statutory career education standards using our free platform to create meaningful and inspirational encounters with business volunteers in under 5 minutes.
  • Inspire your students to think about their future and help them understand the different routes and pathways open to them.
  • Choose from our bespoke encounter types for in-person or virtual events to keep your students engaged, work on skills they are learning in class, and increase their exposure to different job roles, industries and available opportunities.
  • Access our role model database with volunteers across the UK, from a wide range of industries including STEM sectors and sustainability as well as entrepreneurs and business leaders.
  • Track your impact through our publicly available COMMUNITY INSIGHTS pages and see how you measure up against schools in your area or nationally.
