BIG IDEAS FOR BIG CAREERS

About BIG DOOR


 

We are Big Door Productions, creating an exciting new visual careers platform for young people.

The programmes interactive, dynamic website, series of short films and engaging workshops in schools up and down the country, will explore the “behind the scenes” of the world of work.

Focusing on the 11-18 age group; the programme will have a particular, but not exclusive, focus on those from challenged backgrounds, helping them to fulfil their potential.

We’re all about opening the doors to the world of work and raising the aspirations of young people when choosing a career pathway.

Throughout the programme we will be engaging with many young professionals on film, in their place of work.

Our Goal

Across the world we are conscious that young people in the digital age receive their information through visual content; the idea of a very visual-based career platform is the thinking behind the format of the Big Door project.

Our goal is to visually inspire young people about the boundless opportunities that exist in the world of work today and in the future.

Through the Big Door programme we hope to empower young people to make informed education and career decisions, so that they fulfil their ambitions and contribute positively to their communities, society and the wider UK economy.

“The Programme focuses on the spirit of collaboration with young people assessing their individual needs, while offering collective ideas and solutions to their working futures as young adults”

Big Door is a Not for Profit organisation and a supporter of social mobility initiatives.
