Working with Education

Helping young people to help themselves

In addition to our funding programme, The Mason Trust also helps young people in Norfolk and Suffolk by working with them through and in education.

Our education programme includes schools engagement which has helped to deliver activities such as contextualised classroom learning sessions and currently facilitates careers talks and activities in schools and colleges supported by representatives and organisations from industry.  These sessions and workshops - such as our Renew Your Future programme in collaboration with the Sheringham Shoal and Dudgeon community funds - help to directly showcase potential career paths and opportunities in local, emerging sectors.

Additionally we support educational establishments by helping them provide activities such as mock interviews, and we regularly work with aligned organisations such as the Prince's Trust and the DWP, running workshops to support groups of young people looking for career ideas.

The Mason Trust also operates www.icanbea.org.uk - a free website and app 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 hints and tips 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.
