How it works

We’ll meet with you every 1 to 2 weeks to get to know you and explore your aspirations and what industry interest you.

We can meet you at school, Skills Jersey or anywhere you feel comfortable.

We’ll talk to employers and arrange work insights. Work insights are 30 to 60 minutes visits to an employer so you can learn about a role, industry or organisation.

These visits can show you how work can relate to subjects and skills you learn in class. They can also help you find interests for a future work placement.
