Supporting UK schools, colleges and universities to provide insight into the world of work

As a school, college or university you can invite a volunteer role model from the F4S Platform to come into your classroom, either in-person or virtually, free of charge.

  • Effortlessly support your school in meeting statutory career education standards e.g. Gatsby benchmarks of Good Career Guidance and Curriculum for Excellence by using our free platform to quickly create meaningful and inspirational encounters with business volunteers willing to share their career stories.
  • Choose from a wide variety of encounters either in person or virtually to keep your students engaged, improve the range of skills they are learning, and increase their exposure to different industries and the opportunities available to them.
  • Inspire your students to think about their future and help them understand some of the many routes and pathways open to them
  • Track your impact through our publicly available insights pages and see how you measure up against schools in your area or nationally.

“Every school must ensure that pupils are provided with independent careers guidance from year 8 to year 13."
