Brings the world of work alive in your classroom

Welcome to The WOW Show

The WOW Show is an online channel creating real-life encounters with the world of work to inspire young people about their futures.

We are proud to have been named Careers Provider of the Year by the Careers and Enterprise Company and the Gatsby Foundation at the annual Careers Excellence Awards.

Our special shows shine a spotlight on different industries and sectors and the career opportunities and pathways they offer young people. These range from live-streamed events as a shared learning experience to Assembly-tailored programme formats and FaceTime-like Q&As (CareersCast) where students can quiz employers directly. Each Show is supported with lesson plans authored by teachers for KS3, KS4 and KS5.

Our film-making and story-telling has also been recognised with a Gold Award at the creative industries’ London Film Awards.

Just released – special Regional LMI Spotlights

Here students can find out about all the amazing career opportunities on their doorstep in the region where they live.

Designed to bring local labour market information (LMI) to life, these special WOW Show spotlights allow students to explore some of the fastest growing employment sectors and connect with local and national employers to inform and inspire their career choices.

Each film is supported with a comprehensive package of labour market information lesson materials covering KS3, KS4, KS5 and SEND students.
