NEWS: What could a city work experience hub look like?

always possible has been appointed by Southend City Council and Southend & Thurrock Careers Hub to explore what a work experience hub might look like for the new city.

The Homepage – Southend-on-Sea City Council

Following a period of consultation with businesses, schools, colleges and young people, the always possible research team are due to present their ideas soon.

Four different types of hub will be suggested, looking at how businesses, the council and schools could collaborate to create more hands-on opportunities for young people and adults to get a taste for work in the 21st century.

The principles behind any hub will be about sharing knowledge and capacity, co-design, diversity of opportunity and access, and ensuring that experiences are safe, memorable and mapped to other learning and careers inspiration activities.

In 2017, always possible collaborated with national charity Fair Train and Plumpton College on a south east work experience conference.

In 2021, always possible and East Sussex Careers Hub collaborated on the design of a ground-breaking virtual work experience programme, ensuring that young people across the county had meaningful employer encounters during lockdowns.
