Work Ready Virtual Experience  

Developing soft skills virtually.This Virtual Experience is free for all students.

Work-readiness skills are the behavioural skills that enable school and college students to transition effectively into the world of work, and to rapidly add value to their organisations. Research suggests these skills are vital under normal circumstances, with both employers and students citing them as desirable in enhancing performance and efficacy. 

Covid-19 is making the already challenging transition from education to work even more ambiguous and difficult. Isolation, uncertainty and the prospect of working remotely require new, additional skills. 

We are offering a range of free virtual experiences which are designed to arm you specifically with the work-readiness skills that will help you to navigate these challenging times, and empower you to thrive as you seek and secure work experience and apprenticeships.

23 June Mintra Limited Virtual Work Experience 

The session is planned for 09.00 to 13.00

The participants will be divided into groups and you will be asked to play a game. You will then need to make a guideline of "How to play" the game and a presentation on this, using different tools (ppt, gifs) and being creative. The game is aimed at a specific age group and you will need to cater your guideline to that so it is accessible, engaging and easy to understand.

You will get to work as part of a group and build confidence; get to know new people; practise your presentation skills and play with different presentation tools.

Each group will then present their guideline during the session and we will identify the best one. It will give you a chance to evaluate your own work and compare it to that of others:

- did you make the guideline accessible and fun? Was it engaging enough for your age group?

- did you use any visual or audio tools? What material did you use to help you?

- were you engaging in your presentation? Did you make sure to address your audience and make it interesting to follow?

- what did you learn by the end of this experience? Did it seem like an easy task before you started?

Interaction is crucial for successful learning, but the interaction does not simply occur, it must be intentionally designed into the instructional program. The range of activities and methods of delivery and presentation accommodate individual learning styles but at the same time delivering the content in an engaging and effective manner.

EXPLORE BDO VIRTUAL INSIGHT PROGRAMME


Find your future at BDO

Our Explore BDO Virtual Insight week runs from 5th – 9th July and is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the world of accounting. You’ll learn about BDO, accounting careers and why what we do is nothing like the number crunching ideas you may have had. You’ll develop your professional skills and meet people from all across our business.

We believe that your socio-economic background should not determine your career success, so as part of our commitment to ensure access to the world of accountancy, we’re offering students from low socio-economic backgrounds the opportunity to the accountancy careers available at BDO.

This programme is open to Year 10 – 12 students and is aimed at those who attend a state school and have been eligible for free school meals; or would be the first in your family to attend university. For those in the relevant year of study and with the required grades, there is also the opportunity to secure a fast-track onto either our 2022 summer school or 2022 school leaver apprenticeship process.

How to apply:

Complete our application form and, if you meet our eligibility requirements, you will be invited to a virtual workshop to help you prepare and give you hints and tips for the final stage, our online test.

Over the course of the week you’ll learn what working for an accountancy firm is like, get a real taste of what our Apprenticeship Programme contains, and understand why so many people, including our Managing Partner, decided that an apprenticeship was the right career choice for them.
You’ll take part in a project, build your contacts through networking and receive training tailored for the team you’ve applied to. At the end of the week, you’ll have gained valuable experience and skills for your CV, and you’ll also have the opportunity to gain a place on our Apprenticeship Programme to begin your career at BDO.

To gain a place on the programme you’ll need:

  • Three A-levels or equivalent at A* to C excluding General Studies and Extended Projects (predicted)
  • 9 to 4 in Maths and English at GCSE/Scottish Standards or equivalent (non-UK qualifications also considered)
  • To be available to attend on the dates of the virtual programme

How to apply:

Complete our online application form and if you meet our eligibility requirements you’ll be invited to an interactive assessment, followed by a virtual assessment centre. You can get hints and tips on our application process on our How to Apply page.

At the moment, we are all following government guidelines and working from home, and although our programme is virtual, you should apply to a UK office that’s within 90 minutes travelling distance of your home, as if you decide to join our Apprenticeship Programme, you will be based from this location.
