ORT UK believes the optimal way to prepare students for employment is through experience. We’re excited to introduce our four new programmes here:
Our brand new ORT JUMP employability programmes help young people explore different careers & gain awareness of the skills required by their future employers, which will prepare them for the workplace.
A bespoke 5-day work experience programme for Year 12 students, specifically tailored for them to gain real experience in the workplace. Students will be carefully appointed placements specific to their areas of interest and career aspirations. Employers are provided with a guided and industry specific itinerary, ensuring each day provides value for the employer and the student.
During our 3-day UK based programme, industry experts will share practical tips and advice, while taking our students through a range of activities to develop skills in entrepreneurship, reasoning, critical thinking, storytelling and design thinking. Working in teams throughout, they will have the opportunity to create and develop a campaign for a new product, which they will present to our experts and guest judges.

Year 12 students travel to Israel for an ‘Apprentice’ style employability skills challenge. Our participants will join students from the World ORT network as part of an immersive experience; learning and developing new skills with industry experts, including entrepreneurship, critical thinking, market research and design thinking. Working in teams, they will create a solution to real-life barriers that currently exist in a defined sector and present in front of a live judging panel.
