Register as a volunteer! It’s a great way to share your skills with young people aged 7 – 18 and help prepare them for the world of work.
Being a volunteer involves giving a couple of hours, you can choose the school and sessions you want to be a part of.
Being a EBP South business volunteer is a great way to share your skills and to help bridge the skills gap. There are also many additional benefits including:
Student(s) will ask business volunteers questions about their job, company and industry. Students will rotate around the ‘room’ every 15 minutes. This gives students an understanding of different work places as well as building their employability skills e.g. confidence and communication skills.
Business volunteers interview students to help them practice their interview technique. EBP South provides volunteers with a list of questions at the beginning of the event about competencies, interests etc. Volunteers are also welcome to prepare their own questions if they would like to. At the end the volunteers provide the students with feedback on their communication skills, body language etc.
Business volunteers deliver and run a interactive workshops on Body Language, Interview Questions, Interview Scenarios or CV’s. The details of the workshop are provided by EBP South prior to the event and the physical resources are provided on the day.
Primary school children guess volunteers’ job roles by asking ‘yes’ and ‘no’ questions. Volunteers hold up ‘yes’ and ‘no’ cards and can use props to help them guess their job.
A fun challenge that will give students the chance to test and show some of the skills and qualities they’ve learnt during Year 7. For example communication, team work, resilience or problem solving. Testing these skills and qualities will help prepare them for the rest of their school years and working life.
This day will give students the chance to see and try out a broad range of different career options and develop a better understanding of the career choices available to them locally. Taking part in a number of practical activities will help develop their employability skills and their own decision making.
