Get In Get On is a virtual placement programme that gives young people the opportunity to learn about and experience the finance, accountancy and financial services sector via e-mentoring and online training modules.
Developed by the Financial Skills Partnership, Get In Get On exposes 16-19 year olds to the fiancial sector via a one-month online programme. During this period, young people are matched with a firm from the sector and receive e-career mentoring from a volunteer from that firm. They also complete online learning units to help them better understand the sector and prepare for entering a career in financial services or accountancy. After they have completed the programme, young people receive weekly updates on other opportunities in the sector – such as apprenticeships and school leaver schemes – and are invited to attend events with employers.
The ambition of Get In Get On is to support young people to experience the accountancy and financial services industry so that they develop the skills and knowledge that employers in the industry want.
