SATRO offers a range of activities for all age groups which focus on students’ understanding of careers, pathways to employment and the skills they will need for the future. As an educational charity we work in partnership with educators, business, industry and research to educate and challenge young people’s perceptions of the world of work.
With the support of industry experts, employers, colleges, apprenticeship providers and employees we aim to bring real-world understanding of next steps to whole year groups, individual classes and focus groups. This we do through workshops, networking and events.
We also partner schools and corporates to provide 1:1 support through business mentoring to identified students lacking confidence to meet their full potential.
SATRO is part of the Skills Builder Partnership working with employers, organisations and educators to embed essential skills across all age groups. We work with the skills framework across all our programmes.
What we offer is accessible to all students and SATRO prides itself in working to meet the needs of individual schools and their student cohorts of all abilities.
Business and Enterprise Game
Teams of students run a manufacturing business for the day, taking on the roles of CEO, Head of Marketing, Accountant etc.
Careers Speed Networking
This activity involves business volunteers working with small teams of KS4 and KS5 students to enable them to learn about the world of work.
Everyone needs a mentor at some point, but for students aged 14 - 16, the support of an independent listening ear can be invaluable and transformative. Our mentoring programmes are predominately 1:1 and face to face.
SATRO Research Work Placements
Year 12 Students undertake a STEM based research project, working within an employer or academic research environment. The placement runs for up to four weeks during the Summer, enabling students to work alongside qualified professionals and experts.
