Ed2Biz Education Business Consultancy supports schools in Rushmoor and Hart and the surrounding areas. Organising a wide variety of programmes, activities and events designed to help get young people ‘work ready’ and give them an insight into different careers and industries.
This work can only be done through the support of volunteers from businesses, colleges and universities.
Why volunteer? There are huge benefits to everyone involved. Our volunteers have fun working with the students, it can often be exhausting but invariable volunteers come away with a great deal of satisfaction. The students provide volunteers with the opportunity to share their knowledge and skills (and volunteers occasionally gain or enhance some business skills themselves - presentation skills, coaching and communication skills). As well as learning about workplace behaviours and expectations, students gain a lot of confidence from working alongside business professionals and studies have shown that students who have 4 or more interactions with business professionals are more likely to succeed in the world of work.
What’s the time commitment? Sign up to the newsletter and you will get a list of the events and programmes coming up. It’s up to you how many you sign up for, or get in touch and let us know if you’d like to get involved on a longer term basis, perhaps as a mentor and we’ll partner you up with a school.
What sort of events might I be able to volunteer for? There is a wide variety of events available to volunteer for which schools have requested. These can be anything from employability workshops, business talks, mock interviews, work experience, enterprise challenges, speed networking and STEM (science, technology, engineering, science and maths) days.
