  • Over the next decade, more than one billion

    young people will enter the global labour market

    and only 40% will be in jobs that currently exist.

    -The Economist January 2016

  • Facebook brought us closer to our

    friends, LinkedIn has provided us with

    invaluable business tools, and Twitter

    has brought the world to our fingertips.

    Edmodo has been bringing the power of

    the web and mobile to students and has

    become the largest social learning

    network in the world for k12 learning.

    Founders4Schools has brought the

    power of LinkedIn to teachers so their

    students can explore businesses within 5

    miles of the schools location and invite

    them to speak to the students or help

    students get workplace visits

  • UNLEASHING THE POWER OF THE

    BUSINESS COMMUNITY INTO THE CLASSROOM

    Student Employer Encounters

  • OUR GOALS

    improve young peoples ability to make informed career decisions and improve their optimism about the future;

    help young people to increase their attainment and be more likely to enrol in post-secondary education;

    increase the employability of young people; and

    increase young peoples earnings after they complete their schooling

    By getting teachers to 4 student-employer encounters per annum

    By getting students 140 hours of work experience

  • Ramesh Raskar, MIT Media Lab

    Successful Entrepreneurs travel to schools to speak with students

  • Lucinda Bruce Gardyne from Genius Foods

    Inspired by her childs allergy to

    gluten and her passion for

    chemistry, Lucinda set about

    creating a loaf so her eight year

    old son Robin, who had a wheat

    allergy, could dip bread soldiers

    in his boiled eggs at breakfast.

  • The speakers told us

    stories about students of our

    age who had created

    businesses and so I thought

    if they can do it, I could too.

    Maitri Panchal, Student

  • TIMING OF THE INTERVENTION IS KEY

    The timing of the intervention that will

    provide inspiration along with the soft and

    hard skills that will help a young person

    become employable is critical from a

    financial perspective.

    As the figure here highlights, the cost of

    training a young person increases

    exponentially with age: at age 14, the cost

    is less than 1, at age 18 it is less than

    1000 but at age 25, it jumps to 10,000.

  • DELIVERING MEANINGFUL

    ENCOUNTERS

    Founders4Schools enables teachers

    to access local business leaders to

    schedule the following encounters:

    Career Talks

    Group or speed mentoring

    Mock interviews

    Career Fairs

    Keynote career speeches

    Workplace visits

    Plus much more

    CASE STUDY

    https://www.founders4schools.org.uk/teachers/case-studies/ucl-academy/

  • Bobby Ahmadzadeh, a Teach First ambassador

    Brentford School for Girls, West London

    I was excited by how well it went and

    how positive the reactions were.

    Several experienced members of

    staff at our school that often organise

    public speaking events said they had

    never seen an event so amazing!

    It was extremely impactful, and the

    variety and caliber of people took our

    breath away.

    Bobby Ahmadzadeh, a Teach First ambassador heard about Founders4schools from a colleague and created an event for

    his economics students. Immediately after the event, the schools assistant headteacher asked him how this was organised

    and booked one more event for the beginning of the next academic year, for their Year 10 students. She then repeated this

    for their next cohort.

    the attainment gap is to our long-

    fantastic that apps like Workfinder

    they struggle to find young adults

    workplace

    tackling this issue. Not only does it

    provide young people with great

    opportunities, it does so in the

    digital space the natural domain

    future.
