Digital Work Experience

In May, Scape launched Learning in Lockdown, a virtual work experience programme for students aged 14-15.

More than 300 schools and many thousands of students from across the UK joined Learning in Lockdown. The initiative was supported by over 150 people from 32 of the biggest names in construction, giving well over 200 hours of their time collectively.

Overall, the programme returned some fantastic results from the initiative – great feedback from students, teachers and industry alike. Some amazing submissions from the student and with many that will now undoubtedly consider a career in construction.

Throughout the week, Scape measured the success of the initiative and over a 30 hour period, measuring £192,856 of Social Value created, equating to £6,429 of Social Value per hour and a 4:1 social return on investment.
