ELATT needs you!

Be different. Be diverse.

We’re an award-winning charity – we’ve supported hundreds of students to better their lives for over 30 years. We welcome students who want to develop their skills, gain confidence and learn at any stage of their lives. Our courses include Maths, English, Web Design and Development, Computer Engineering, Digital Media Production and Business Administration. When it comes to training, we’ve got it covered, but we need your help to get our talented people into the world of work.

We have found that the first step towards employment is the hardest – with no recent work experience, only 30% of our students get into work, compared to 80% of those with recent work experience. There are three main ways you can help us get our enthusiastic students into work; mentoring, work experience and work placements. There is no commitment – even just an hour of your time to host a visit can make a huge difference to our students’ career prospects.

We know that the first step towards employment is the hardest: with no recent work experience, only 30% of our students get into work.  But once they have experience, 80% of our students move into employment. 

Be part of that change: support us by offering mentoring, work experience and work placements to our talented and dedicated students.  Even just a few hours of your time can be all we need.

Be different. Be diverse. Become an ELATT supporter.

Mentoring

The simplest way you can support our learners to make the step from education to employment.

Shadowing

Host a one-off visit for learners or one-to-one shadowing where a learner follows your daily work routine.

Volunteering

Work experience or volunteering is another great option for providing a longer insight into your workplace.

Work Placement

Provide work that needs doing and would like to offer an opportunity to a determined individual.


Mentoring

Support a student one-to-one

Mentoring is a simple way to support our students to make the step from education to employment. We will match you with a student who is interested in your sector or career path who you can then support with advice such as: how you got into the industry; CV and job application tips specific to the industry, and how to find opportunities. We will be on standby to give you any help you need and will have a monthly check in.

Mentoring is also a great professional development opportunity for the mentor, the perfect way to develop your leadership skills whilst enjoying the feel good factor of supporting the next generation of talent!

Become a Mentor


Work experience

Provide insight into the workplace through hosting a visit to your organisation.

You can host a one-off visit for a group of our students, giving a tour of your operations and even running a training session or employment workshop for our students. Recently, 12 of our computer engineering students spent a day in Sopra Steria's Digilab learning coding for Internet of Things devices.

You can also offer work shadowing where a student follows your daily work routine, providing an invaluable insight into the work environment.

Please get in touch to find out more – just a couple of hours of your time could be the vital step needed to help a young person or adult back into work!

Work placement

Longer term placements for students, from 4 to 12 weeks – paid or unpaid

A work placement is the perfect way to provide a deeper insight into the workplace. You can support an individual or a small group of our students, and placements can last from 4 to 12 weeks, depending on what suits you. We can offer support and guidance throughout the process to ensure that both you and the candidate have a smooth and positive experience.

Our students already take work placements with industry-leading organisations such as Opus II International and Withers International. If you would like to offer an incredible opportunity to a talented and determined individual, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
