Have a day at the office with Barclays!
Barclays Lifeskills is offering an online interactive activity where young people, aged 14 and up, can experience a day at work. This interactive video gives you insight into what a typical day at work would be like. During the video, you can choose the different options and take a tour through the office with a personal guide. You get to visit the different departments like product development and marketing and have a sit-in with Human Resources. To be a part of this experience, click here.

Sign up for great opportunities with Speakers for School!
Speakers for Schools is a free advertising and application portal where students from any state school aged 14 and up can apply for work experience at leading organisations. If you’d like to apply for an opportunity, a teacher at your child’s school also needs to register with Speakers for Schools to verify the school’s details. The opportunities are focused on helping young people better understand the world of work, gain valuable skills, and develop insights about industries to help prepare them for the future.
