Leicestershire Cares pairs volunteers from our business members with schools and colleges across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to deliver high quality, meaningful employability activities. These help improve students’ academic attainment, life chances, social mobility and the potential for future wage earnings, while providing businesses with valuable opportunities to develop their talent pipeline and give back to the community.

Activities your business could get involved with include:

  • Inspirational talks and speedy speakers
  • Workplace visits and tours
  • CV workshops
  • Q&A panels
  • Industry showcase events
  • Employability Team Challenges
