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.

New: Pharmacy Career Insights with Q&A

The WOW Show’s exciting new interactive package about careers in Pharmacy takes students from the classroom to working on the frontline – and includes a special programme giving five schools from around the country the opportunity to put their questions to our panel of young experts about careers in this vital healthcare profession.

Two fly on the wall films provide a graphic first hand experience of a typical day in the life of two Pharmacists working in very different real world roles.

Think you know what Pharmacists do? These films – and our comprehensive classroom resources – will change your mind.

Grace takes us on a tour as she meets the colleagues and patients she deals with every day working in a GP’s Surgery and a Care Home.

Claire shows us what it’s like to be an emergency and urgent care specialist Pharmacist working in a hospital on the front line and making a real difference to people’s lives.

Lesson Plans

Working with Health Education England and our teacher-led partners VotesforSchools, we have created a comprehensive package of structured lesson plans highlighting how listening and communications skills are so crucial in all careers and letting students understand the sorts of interactions pharmacy professionals actually have in practice.
