Work Inspiration Toolkit
how to provide work inspiration
The Work Inspiration Toolkit is a practical guide to support businesses to provide inspirational work experience and workplace visits for young people.
Each sector and workplace are different with different considerations, so this toolkit should be used as a guide to help businesses consider what to put in place to create robust programmes. Included with the toolkit are some supporting practical activities businesses can use, as well as examples from companies that have already developed an infrastructure relevant for their business environment and have kindly agreed to share examples. These examples should be used for reference only to help your company develop supporting documents relevant to you.
Supporting documents and information
Three insight documents
Each of the three documents provides exercises and tools to use with your student during their work placement. These fun sessions take no more than an hour each but are the key to creating a truly inspiring placement. Each exercise builds on the one before it.
Example document templates for you to use
- UBS Work Experience Charter – An example of a charter created by UBS to communicate their approach to work experience and ensure it is inclusive. It describes what is considered work experience, how it should be managed and an approach to managing requests from friends and family.
- UBS Student Application Form – An example of an application for year 10 students who are applying for a work experience placement.
- UBS Student Confirmation Letter – An example letter UBS send to students who have successfully gained a work experience placement with their business.
- Barclays Risk Assessment and Confidentiality Agreement
- Barclays Work Experience Resource Pack For Students – An example of a handbook for work experience students to use during their placement.
These are example only documents and should be used as reference only.
