Meet an employee-school session

Join us for our free, hands-on workshop, Meet an Employee in Technicians: The David Sainsbury Gallery, where students will get to meet a technician and experience what it’s like to do their job, with an activity and Q&A session. For KS3 and KS4. 

Available on selected days from January 2023. 

Your students will carry out job-related tasks in activities led by a real life technician as a role model to help students to identify the skills needed. 

There will be lots of opportunity to ask the technician questions throughout the task and in a special Q&A session. Students will find out what it's like to do their job, how they got into it, what inspired them to become a technician and more. 

Afterwards, there will be time to explore the Technicians gallery

This experience would support you in meeting Gatsby’s Good Career Guidance benchmarks by providing opportunities to experience workplace environments and encounter employees.

There may be other schools in this session with your group.
