Speakers for Schools - Information for employers

Speakers for Schools is a charity founded in 2010 with the aim of giving all young people access to prestigious networks of employer contacts. Its services and support are offered free of charge to schools.

Careers Wales has partnered with Speakers for Schools to support employers in Wales to offer virtual work experience opportunities to young people.

Whether you are a regional company looking to benefit the local community or a corporation seeking national reach, Speakers for Schools can support you. Hosting a work experience opportunity will allow you to give young people an insight into different roles in your organisation and industry. Work experience enables young people to experience the world of work first-hand. It will give them a chance to develop skills and build confidence.
