Virtual Work Experience

Work hasn’t stopped, so why should work experience? Class Of Your Own explains...

2020 will be remembered as the year the world stayed home. That included the exciting STEM-focused “AEC” industry (that’s Architecture, Engineering and Construction).

Thousands of young people were (and may continue to be) unable to access a work experience opportunity to explore the ‘real world of work’ and start building their CVs.

Thanks to the support of leading Universities and AEC companies, and access to some of their amazing real-life projects, Class Of Your Own (creator of DEC) was one of the first organisations to design and deliver virtual work experience programmes during lockdown.

Class Of Your Own offers students access to a high-quality experience using a combination of engaging short films, presentations and live discussions, all presented on DfE approved platform “Learn Live”.

Students develop the key knowledge and employability, technical and business skills required for a career in architecture, engineering and construction.

They produce a portfolio of work (guided by our helpful template) including a design and model using any software or gaming programme they are familiar with, or using paper and recycled materials for their model (cardboard, yoghurt pots…think Blue Peter!).

Learn from the best in the business at our virtual work experience weeks at only £35 + VAT per student/week.

Offer available to all school and college students age 14 to 19.
