S.I.D.E Founder, Rebecca has worked with London Transport Museum on an ongoing consultancy basis to develop their flagship Enjoyment to Employment initiative, a formative programme which reaches 50,000+ children and young people every year at key points throughout their learning and development.
Rebecca has supported the museum at significant key stages of the programme’s development; from stakeholder strategy, to programme design, to delivery and evaluation.
Route into Work offers an example of her contribution: A 3-day accredited pre-employment training developed in partnership with Transport for London. Route into Work harnesses the Museum’s rich transport collection and industry connections to support young people into careers in the transport industry. Since it started in 2010, Route into Work has been highly successful in supporting the museum to diversify their audience and strengthen their partnership with TfL. It has generated 100’s of transport opportunities for young people, and enabled transport employers to recruit fresh young talent into their workforce (see video, images and feedback below).
Rebecca has co-designed other professional development packages and methodologies for the Museum, covering topics such as Reflective Practice, Operations and Governance, Project Management, Networking and Going Freelance.
