At Founders4Schools, we are extremely proud of the work we do in bridging the gap between students and employers. That is why we love hearing the positive feedback from teachers as they are lucky enough to watch as students’ aspirations are lifted and the cogs start turning to formulate stimulating career paths. However, it is not only the students that benefit immensely from the events, the speakers consistently tell us just how rewarding it is to give back to their local community by sharing the story of their career paths and advice.
Here what some of our speakers have to say about their experience with Founders4Schools:
“It was an honour and a privilege to share my career journey with the girls at Sinai Jewish Primary School for Founders4Schools. I want all girls to really be free, to reach and dream for whatever they can imagine. No limitations.”
Warran Brindle, Founder and Creative Director of COUNTRY
“I believe it is essential to offer young people specific industry insight in order for them to understand the challenges awaiting them. All business owners should use Founders4Schools, they will learn something new about themselves!”
“If I can influence at least one young person to take an interest in Entrepreneurship, I think I have won and the community as a whole has won.”
What’s more – to share the success stories of students across the country that have interacted with you – today’s employers – we have put together some visual case studies to share the stories. Check out our first couple of stories from Central Foundation Boys’ School and Bexleyheath Academy here.
Please share these infographics with your networks of colleagues. If you are a speaker that has generated this positive change in closing the skills gap for the next generation, we know you must be as proud as we are about the impact you have made – why not tweet about it and share these stories via our twitter handle: @Founders4Schools
