Marketplace opportunity types

Employers can offer three types of opportunities to help young people build work skills, open their career options and learn about the world of work.

  1. Work inspiration and preparation. Be inspired and prepare for the world of work through activities offered by employers. It could be a class talk or challenge, workplace visit, career and apprenticeship event, skills session or mock interview. 
  2. Work experience and placements. School pupils and students will find opportunities from employers to experience what it’s really like in the workplace. Placements are available during the school holidays or any time of year if you’re not in education. 
  3. Influence the influencer. These events are for parents and carers, educators, careers advisers and other practitioners. You’ll find activities or resources from employers about their role, company or sector to help inspire young people.
