Creating Access!

Creating Access!

In a 2019 report published by Founders4Schools, 5 key factors were identified as essential for the implementation of good Careers Education, including "Authenticity, Progression, More is more, Open-mindedness and Universality" - a principle we seek especially to implement in order to provide access for all children regardless ofcircumstance or background. 

The non-profit organization National Careers Week emphasizes the significance of empowerment for young people who, through an early introduction to topics related to careers, are able to build a confidence that allows them to look to their future brightly.

We are bringing all of this with tips, insights and the support of many brand partners to Careers events here at KidZania London!

Pupils will learn the do’s and don’ts of an interview and will then role-play as employee and employer in groups as if they were being interviewed for a job in our City. The groups then have a chance to decide whether they should hire the candidate or not.
