Meet the team and learn about the history of our business
Learning to Work is a not-for-profit organisation with charitable status; set up to facilitate links between education and the world of work.
Business engagement is at the heart of everything we do and is what sets our activities apart when it comes to giving young people an insight into the world of work and what employers will expect of them when they enter the workplace. We are extremely passionate about the work we do and the impact we have on the lives of young people.
Learning to Work achieved matrix Standard accreditation in 2014 and 2017 recognises our information, advice and guidance services and accredits our capability to support our schools with their responsibility for careers education.
Each year we work with over 18,000 young people on a variety of different activities including; Work Experience, Work Ready Activities, Business Insight Days, Careers & Apprenticeship Events, Enterprise Activities, Inter-school Competitions, STEM, IAG (Information, Advice & Guidance), as well as support for Specials Needs and students struggling with mainstream education.
With the support of our Business Volunteers, these activities aim to bring the World of Work alive for Young People and give them the skills they will need to be successful.
“Employees from CA Technologies continue to engage with schools & colleges locally to showcase STEM careers in action and this is only possible with the support of Learning to Work. As a charity, the team works tirelessly to ensure that business engagement in education is valuable and relevant to the current curriculum. As a business, we are able to participate with ease in the community; listening, sharing our knowledge and motivating our employees to volunteer – our thanks to Learning to Work” says Sarah Atkinson, CA Vice President
