Business Continuity Statement
Business Continuity Statement – June 2020
The last two months have been incredibly challenging for everyone. At Learning to Work we have spent our time focusing on mission critical activities that ensure our continued ability to bring opportunity to young people.
Like many organisations, we have invoked the use of the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme to furlough some staff in order to safeguard the team and our sustainability over the lockdown period.
A core team has continued to work from home through lockdown focusing on four key areas:
• Supporting our schools with planning for the summer term and the new academic year 2020-21.
• Adapting and developing our Work Ready and Careers Guidance programmes for virtual or remote delivery.
• Harnessing the overwhelming support, we continue to receive from our fantastic business volunteers.
• Securing funding to be able to support young people at crucial stages of transition within education during the coronavirus pandemic.
So far we have had success in all four areas, with our first online support programme for Year 11 students going live last month; funding secured to support young people in Slough and the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead; content created by our business volunteers and new Gatsby programmes put in place for schools from September onwards.
For more information on any of the above, or if we can support you, your school or your business during these challenging times please do not hesitate to contact us.
