You are ready to be scrappy, resourceful, admit when you do not know the answer, and go and find it. You want to shake the tree, rather than look for the lowest hanging fruit.
You want to work at F4S because you realised how school was so disconnected from the real world. You believe that there is a better way to make kids excited about their future and help them enjoy and fulfilling productive lives.
You believe that schools can use technology to change what they do from the inside-out. You have exciting ideas to bring to the table to help us see things differently and do better. I look forward to working with you.
Founders4Schools (F4S) is a pioneering educational-tech charity working to connect children and young people with inspirational role models to improve their aspirations, fulfil their potential and prepare them for the rapidly changing world of work.
We have created a simple, free-to-use digital platform which enables educators across the UK to connect with business leaders and professionals in their local community. In as little as four minutes, educators can organise a programme of student employer encounters for their students, which helps to expand young people’s horizons and put them on the path to a brighter future.
To date, we have helped over 316,000 young people gain experience of the world of work by facilitating over 1 million student employer encounters through our digital platform.
