“Every pupil should have first-hand experiences of the workplace through work visits, work shadowing and/or work experience to help their exploration of career opportunities and expand their networks. Every year, from the age of 11, pupils should participate in at least one meaningful encounter with an employer.”

Prof John Holman 2014 (Gatsby Foundation Report for Good Career Guidance)
