Employer Engagement Project

Take over a lesson in a school to show how your businesses use an aspect of the curriculum in a real working environment.

 For example:

  • Show how you use algebra that you use in your workplace.
  • Show how you use chemicals used in your hair salon.

We are giving companies (of any size) or individuals that want to promote their industry the opportunity to be part of this project. You know your industry well and we need to come up with a task that links your world of work to a subject in the curriculum. It can be Math, English, Science, Geography etc. 


You can create one task and deliver it as a one-off to one class, or one task and deliver it to multiple classes/schools, or multiple tasks. Or you can create a task and WE can deliver it to the school!

  • Create a task and deliver it virtually with us assisting you along the way.
  • Create a task and deliver it in school - Subject to Covid-19 procedures.

How we will help and support you

This is a programme that is funded by the Hearn Foundation and in Partnership with EBP South. We are running the project across schools in Hampshire. We will support you throughout and make it as easy as possible for you to support young people.

We will:

  • Ensure your task links to a specific area of the curriculum.
  • Identify the school and organise timings to link with the curriculum. 
  • Provide you with a lesson plan and support.
  • Give you a presentation template.
  • Provide you with an info-graphic with the impact you've made.
  • Be there on the day to facilitate the lesson.

The aim 

Help young people to:

  • Understand how what is learned in the classroom is relevant to the world of work.
  • Engage in the GCSE subject.
  • Focus on the subject content.
  • Have a higher engagement in the subject.

Help schools to:

  • Meet Gatsby Benchmark 4 + 5.
  • Help the school to provide evidence for OFSTED.


This project is currently being delivering in person or virtually  (through Teams but can also be delivered through Zoom and other platforms on reques) across Hampshire.

Once a school and employer has an Employment Engagement Session booked in they will be sent further information.

EBP South will introduce the session the employer will then take over giving an introduction to their company and explain how they use that part of the curriculum in their work place. The employer will then set a challenge which is based on the part of the curriculum.

Through two-way communication students will discuss with the employer their answers and the employer will give them feedback on the answer and importance that what they are learning in school is used the world of work and its not just for exams.
