WK are running the Bristol half marathon

On 13thIMG_7012 September some members of the Working Knowledge team and some partners/ friends, will be challenging themselves to run the Bristol half marathon, raising money for two charities which are very close to our hearts; Macmillan Cancer Support and CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably). We are a motley crew, but we love a challenge and team work is something we pride ourselves in. Please show us your support!

Introducing Working Knowledge

Working Knowledge is a social enterprise that exists to open the eyes of business to the young talent available locally.

With Ofsted applying pressure on educators to better prepare young people for the workplace, it is essential we also positively change the perception of business as to the benefits that a young person can bring to them. Inspiring employers to create new career opportunities for young people.

We have 9 years of experience helping colleges engage relevant employers to co-design and co-deliver the curriculum to maximise employment opportunities for their learners while evidencing activity against the CIF.

Currently we partner with 16 colleges and three schools, have worked with 23,000 learners, 2,300 staff and 3,850 businesses, providing them with a range of partnership services including delivering learner-employer programmes, staff training and strategic consultancy. Ultimately building their capacity to deliver an education to young people that employers value and actively recruit from.

We actively change the culture of staff, students and employers through training and motivation. As a result, our approach should reduce college costs and maximise income.
