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.
Choose which encounter best suits your students needs at this moment and create an encounter through our secure online platform. Filter the business volunteers to meet the unique needs of your students.
Kick back and relax
We will get in contact with your chosen volunteer role models before your event to invite them to support your students.
We continue to invite volunteers on your behalf until we have secured speakers for you.
Contact your confirmed role model speaker through your dashboard prior to your event to update them on final details and ensure everyone involved will get the most from the encounter.
Host your event!
On the day, prepare to welcome your volunteer role model and host a highly engaging event for your students!
Don’t stop there! Create your next encounter straight away, and build on the great work that you have started.
