Work Experience Framework
The Work Experience Framework has been developed to support employers to offer structured and meaningful encounters for young people, whilst enabling careers leaders to enhance their wider careers programmes.
The framework is composed of a range of resources and guides that support the employer and educator throughout the process with a range of activities for young people.
Flexibility allows for face to face, blended or fully virtual delivery. Comprised of sequenced yet customisable modules, the delivery of the framework can be adapted to best suit the preferences of the employer and educator.
