Welcome

To the Job Junction

"You don't need a reason to help people"

The Job Junction…

“When I am determined to do something, I usually do it.”

Duncan Bannatyne

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

Benjamin Franklin

“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”

John F.Kennedy

“There is a huge value in learning with instant feedback.”

Anant Agarwal

We are in business to make a difference everyday. If we aren’t having a positive impact then we are not happy.

What Government want…..

“Every school should engage fully with local employer and professional community to ensure real world connections with employers lie at the heart of of the careers strategy”

What the Business Secretary, Vince Cable says….. 

“Many schools simply ignore  careers advice altogether. This must change. I want to see more projects like the BRILLIANT Job Junction.” (6th March 2014 Trade and Industry Dinner)

What OFSTED have found….

“The Guidance that students receive is excellent. Students are made fully aware of career opportunities through the Job Junction within the school.” (Ofsted 2014)

Being passionate about bridging the gap between business and education, The Job Junction “Brings Work and Entrepreneurship to life, in schools, DAILY”.

The Job Junction acts as a gateway (both locally and nationally) for employers and partners to fruitfully engage with the schools and our young people.

With a mission to embed a Job Junction in every school in the UK (through a dynamic network of Licensees) which allows students of ALL ages to:

1.  Discover their natural talent – and develop this talent in a supported environment

2.  Identify aspirational and credible career paths, and taking responsibility for their own success – making informed choices.

3.  Practice and hone employability skills, which are measured and developed to labour market standard, with input from real employers.

4. Gain real work experience by being part of  their school’s DREAM team (supporting their fellow students).

5. Establish credible connections with employers, that will serve them post education.

“Supply and demand sitting side-by-side”

A constant interface between business and education ensuring that supply is being driven to meet demand, and that students know their opportunities in a ‘real time’ basis (not based on historical data).

“Simplicity and Strategy the best of friends”

Responding to and influencing economic and skills strategy (at national and local level) whilst translating it into simple practices on the ground, for students and businesses.

“Enthusiasm and opportunity working through the lunchtime break”

Enthusing students to enquire, to explore, to refine.
