Community & Communications

The Founders4Schools website makes it easy for teachers to access business leaders to help teachers raise the attainment of pupils. All responsibility rests with the users of the services.

If a teacher is using F4S services to arrange for role models to visit the school or to send representatives to careers fairs, it is the responsibility of the teacher to ensure that the visitor is met at the school office. F4S provides materials to allow the school office identify the visitor that is to be accompanied throughout the visit.

Teachers who arrange workplace visits agree to and accept liability for ensuring the safety of their students at all times.

Employers who agree to workplace visit requests made of them by teachers accept liability for ensuring the safety of the visitors while on their premises.
