Working Knowledge are a Social Enterprise dedicated to opening the eyes of business to young talent available locally.
We run events for 30 to 500 students at a time which in FE are usually funded via the QCF and with Universities by Graduate employers.
Each event we deliver is tailored to the interests of the student delegates, the requirements of the college and the expectations of local employers.
All events involve ‘experts’ or local employers that are from industries appropriate to the student delegates to ensure that the programme is highly contextual. We recruit these employers on your behalf at a ratio of 1 employer per 7 students.
Over the past 6 years we have partnered with 100 HE and FE and engaged over 1,500 employers and 10,000 students in our events.
In 2008 we were awarded a National Training Award for our innovative approach, click here to find out more.
In addition to running events we TRAIN staff on engaging businesses, DESIGN tutorial programmes that engage the local business community and CONSULT on embedding enterprise and employability skills in curricula.
