Work Ready Virtual Experience Launches to Support Students During COVID-19

It’s safe to say COVID-19 has hit us all like a headbutt from a humpback whale.

We’ve had to adapt very quickly in our personal and professional lives, which has involved using technology more than ever before.

With over a third of businesses reducing the number of interns they’re hiring this year (ISE Survey), thousands of students will miss out on the opportunity to develop their skills on an internship.

At RMP, we are passionate about helping students develop their skills and are extremely excited to launch a brand new Work Ready Virtual Experience, in partnership with Development Beyond Learning and Inside Sherpa

The virtual experience is designed to help students develop their ‘work-readiness’ skills during COVID-19 lockdown. The programme is initially formed of three modules - Wellbeing and Resilience under lockdown, Virtual Impressions and Virtual Networking

Oliver Sidwell, Co-founder of RMP comments, “We are delighted to work with Development Beyond Learning and Inside Sherpa to offer a range of free virtual experiences to students during COVID-19 lockdown. The experiences are designed to arm all students specifically with the work-readiness skills that will help them to navigate these challenging times.”

Students can register for the virtual experience by visiting the landing page here.
