Introduction to Working Life

Introduction to Working Life

These one-day workshops offer an exciting opportunity for Year 6 pupils to gain valuable insights into the working world. With a focus on raising aspirations, all workshops take place at a corporate firm and explore the career opportunities available in financial, professional and related services.

Introduction to Working Life

Thanks to funding from The Nomura Charitable Trust, these sessions are available for state schools in the London boroughs of Enfield and Lewisham.

Key highlights of the session include:

  • An interactive introduction to the host business. Pupils learn about different sectors with a digital quiz, practise business presentation skills and participate in a small team challenge.
  • A guided tour of the office (where available), with insight into the different departments within the business.
  • The chance to meet employees and learn about their roles, careers and aspirations first-hand.
  • A team challenge which promotes a range of skills, including teamwork, problem-solving, creativity and presentation techniques.

  • The team at The Brokerage have put together a very well thought out programme. They have even asked students to trial their content and have taken our thoughts into their consideration. All the modules will be really helpful to me because they target exactly what I am not sure about such as how to write a good CV and cover letter, and how to use LinkedIn most effectively. I think this has been a very beneficial opportunity to me; I can’t wait to start the programme!
