Employer Engagement Project

Have a business come in and show your students, how what they learn as part of the curriculum is linked and used in the world of work.

For example:

  • How algebra is used in developing vaccines by a pharmaceutical manufacturer.
  • How ratios are used to mix chemicals in a hair salon.

This project is aimed at Years 10 & 11. We can offer sessions that match to curriculum subjects in GCSE English, Maths, Science, Geography etc.


This project can be delivered in two ways by businesses; either in-person or virtually.

How we will help and support you

This project is funded by The Hearn Foundation and in partnership with EBP South.

We will support you throughout and make it as easy as possible to deliver by:

  • Ensuring all tasks link to a specific area of the curriculum.
  • Work with you to organise timings of the session(s).
  • Be there on the day to facilitate the lesson.

The aim 

Help young people to:

  • Understand how classroom learning 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 being run across schools in Hampshire and the surrounding areas.
