Hello and welcome to our World of Work hub, full of resources that will help you explore the world of work, build valuable life and enterprise skills and prepare for your future… from wherever you are.

We know that many of you should have been on your work experience placements this term, or having one-to-one career guidance. This is why we’ve launched World of Work Week, to make sure you still have access to information and advice from experts to help you take the first steps on your career path.

Below you’ll find information on our live Zoominars – Q&As with a panel of industry experts –and you can watch our Day In The Life videos to give you a glimpse into what it’s like to work in a whole range of different jobs. We’ve also put together a list of fantastic online resources, from digital internships and work experience, to CV writing workshops on our World of Work extra resources page. We’ll be adding more and more resources here, so do keep checking.

Industry Zoominars

Occasionally, we will be bringing you live Zoominars, which will  give you the opportunity to find out, first-hand, about the panellists’ career journeys, what the routes in to a range of industries are, and to ask for tips and advice on getting ahead.

When we have live Zoominars scheduled, you’ll be able to see the topic, date and time below and all you need to do is click the ‘sign up’ button to register for any sessions that spark your interest and log in just before the start time, using the link you’ll receive in your confirmation email.T
