For sessions taking place in person in schools, social distancing measures will be taken in accordance with the most up-to-date government guidelines.

Online and remote sessions

For our online and remote sessions volunteers will engage with students either via Zoom webinars or Google Meet, mediated by Trust staff.

The volunteer’s role is to support the session by introducing themselves and their role (you may be asked to speak for 2 mins) as well as answering questions when prompted, typically during designated Q&A sections. The volunteer may also be asked to offer their opinion on a specific topic or answer additional questions, as directed by the Construction Youth Trust delivery lead, at other points in the session.

Volunteers will be sent a full volunteer brief and instructions before each session.
