Help Us Create Discovery Boxes

The Careers Hub are looking to develop ‘Discovery Boxes’ for students with particularly high needs in the county’s special schools, helping to support the schools' careers education programme.

These learners have communication and sensory needs that mean that they are unlikely to enter paid work in the future, but learning about jobs and work in their community is still a very important part to their development.

Could your company assist with putting together some practical ‘Discovery Boxes’ for the seven community special schools in Gloucestershire? Items for inclusion could be something that the students could wear, smell or touch to help their engagement and learning – for example, a coffee shop could provide a box including an apron, bag of coffee beans, a cup, menu and a takeaway bag.

If you would like to get involved, or would like to find out more, please get in touch with Lauren Greening, SEND Enterprise Coordinator, by emailing
