Big Academy Schools
At the Big Academy, we're about much more than just being the most effective and innovative youth recruiter! We offer a wide range of careers support, online courses, Alumni, work experience tools and information advice and guidance for schools wishing to support young people who are about to make career choices.

These are difficult times for most job seekers; it's particularly difficult for young people looking for their first position. Employers will recruit the best people for the job; it’s the same for all staff levels in all sectors. It's important to us that we work with young people before they leave school, awaken their potential and create a desire to take up their rightful place in the workplace.

We use one of the most effective psychometric testing platforms around to help young people recognise the types of roles most suitable to their personality and natural characteristics. This process combined with our employability and recruitment workshops really open up the students aspirations around work. Employers will recognise the test results and combined with our unique online candidate profiles will have a bigger impact than any CV alone can have.

Alongside this, our education team can provide your students with a meaningful and structured work experience programme. We provide a free matching service linking students to employers and can help arrange a work experience placement, from sign up to health and safety checks. In other words, we’re here to help!

We're here to help in any way we can, you can find out about the various services we can offer at the links below. Please get in touch to make an enquiry, you can email us at, our team will be happy to provide you with more information and answer any questions.
