As last week's National Careers Week drew to a close, one ongoing career-focused opportunity for Oxfordshire employers is to support two 'human libraries'.
Taking place at Oxford's Iffley Academy on 26 March and Banbury-based Frankwise School on 29 March, these two Oxfordshire schools are aiming to recruit volunteers for human libraries.
Volunteers from Oxfordshire businesses will talk about aspirational and obtainable jobs for young people with learning difficulties and disabilities.
The Frankwise human library will operate in a 'speed dating' format, where a volunteer will talk about their role and then rotate around groups. The second format will see volunteers selected by the students - just as you would when you take a book from a shelf in the library.Iffley Academy are opting for this format.
Volunteers will be asked to talk about their jobs and respective career paths. Talks will last for around five minutes and volunteers will be asked to bring a prop with them to show the students.
