School 21

School 21’s take on work experience provide both student and their host workplace with something that is more meaningful and authentic than traditional work experience. Spending half a day a week in the workplace, for 13 weeks, Year 10 students are tasked with solving an authentic problem for a real organisation.

The projects can take any form, as long as there is an authentic outcome that students are required to produce. It should be something that would be of genuine value to the organisation.

With the help of Sisterhood, School 21 Sisters set up a pop-up design studio within Makerversity, a fabrication lab made up of Europe’s most exciting community of emergent maker businesses. Surrounded by inspiration and London’s most creative makers and thinkers the girls joined Sisterhood on our mission to boost confidence in young girls through creativity.

 

The
Project
Brief

Help girls feel comfortable with their natural beauty and create opportunities to see more realistic and diverse representations of women in the media.

The School 21 Sisters have initiated a digital platform - We Recognise which aims to use the power of storytelling to celebrate and encourage natural beauty from diverse cultures; thus reframing the unrealistic standards of beauty represented in the media.
