Promethean offered young people personalised work experience

Danny works for the Lancashire Careers Hub as a Deputy Careers Hub Lead. His role involves supporting schools in working towards a framework called the Gatsby Benchmark, which class as 8 pillars of good practice. Danny helps support the schools in making sure that these 8 benchmarks/ pillars of good practice are embedded throughout their careers programme.

Danny was put in touch with Promethean, who got involved through the Give an Hour Campaign. Where they pledged to give an hour’s worth of activity for students at local schools. That then manifested into them wanting to become an Enterprise Adviser, entailing them to support Danny, local schools, and schools’ senior leadership teams.

“It’s allowed [our students] to think about jobs that they might have not considered before. By going to the community that they live in and looking at the jobs that they could potentially be able to do. The Lancashire Careers Hub and having those networks and people supporting us has allowed us to open doors to employers who are willing to work with our students.”

Hear from Amy Dasski the HR Business Partner for Promethean Limited.

“We’re based in Blackburn but we’re a global company, we’ve got 22 different countries that we’re located in… I joined the Lancashire Careers Hub so that we could support young people in a much more meaningful way. The traditional work experience format didn’t work for us, we’re a very complex organisation and it didn’t give young people insight into what we do. It didn’t give them the opportunity to get excited about what the future may hold for them in a place of work.”
