Workplace visits are a new, free service designed to boost what teachers can do to improve student aspirations, attainment and employability.
It takes just 5 minutes to set up a workplace visit event.

There is nothing like seeing things with your own eyes. Much more impactful that the impression that is given to young people of business from programmes like ‘Dragons Den’ or ‘The Apprentice’, we help teachers connect their students to business and industry like never before. After exams are finished, what better than to explore the forces driving the economy with founders and senior leadership as your guide.
We get you backstage, connecting you with founders, thought leaders and changemakers that are all around you. Workplace visits give students the opportunity to learn first-hand about a company and modern day careers through a visit to a company to speak to the people who make it tick.
Visits arranged over the F4S service run for 90 minutes, and start at 10am or 2pm.
Our groups are small and have either 10 or 30 students so that we maximise the impact of the visit.
An Example Format
Welcome by one of the senior leaders of the company.
Tell your personal story (it could be the founder, senior leader, and/ or a few employees from different backgrounds in various roles).
Key questions to cover:
We recommend leaving plenty of time (15-20 minutes) for questions - leave lots of room for discussion/exploration.
Make sure the visit involves some kind of active involvement - a demo, a tour, testing, speed-meeting with various employees.
