Marketplace is an online tool connecting schools and colleges with business. Just tell us what you can offer, such as a talk, workshop, school visit or placement. We’ll help you connect by posting your opportunity on our online noticeboard for schools and colleges to get in touch. It’s that simple.

Here's some of the benefits:

  • Young people will benefit from your knowledge and expertise – you can help them develop the attitude and skills employers need
  • You can inspire young people to work for you or in your sector
  • You can raise awareness of who you are and what you do
  • It’s great for staff development. Employees involved will gain a sense of achievement in helping young people.
