We help young people in Norfolk and Suffolk by working with them through - and in - education.
Our education programme includes direct schools engagement and our main focus is currently on providing classroom-based sessions in schools and colleges, namely workshops on understanding where certain skills could lead, identifying local career-start opportunities and getting a working CV up and running using our free online platform 'icanbea...'
We can also work with other aligned organisations such as Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils and the DWP (for example), supporting groups of young people or individuals looking for career information.
In addition, The Mason Trust operates www.icanbea.org.uk - a free website where young people can explore career ideas in the context of Norfolk and Suffolk's growth industries, follow potential and local employer organisations and browse, filter and apply for the opportunities on offer in the region. If you would like us to run an icanbea... workshop in your school or college, please get in touch.
Finally, we also offer an ad hoc advice service for young people who are looking for specific opportunities or routes into industry, providing information about the employers that we work with and offering general advice and CV writing support. Check out our Thinking about Careers page to get started.
If you think any elements of our education programme could benefit you as an individual or your organisation, please get in touch with us using the contact form on this website.
