Volunteer for Discover Risk

In recent years, we have successfully delivered a series of free, interactive events called Discover Risk. The session lasts 90 minutes and is targeted at 20-35 Year 11-13 students and is open to all regardless of subject area.

For teachers, the session can help build links with potential recruiters of students looking at apprenticeships or general work experience. 

For students, it allows them to gain a greater understanding of the sector and the range of careers opportunities available to them.

For you,  it is a great way to give something back and inspire the next generation of professionals!

A typical Discover Risk event is as follows:

  • Introduction to the risk profession – insurance to you and me
  • Short introduction of the volunteer and their career path
  • A competition for 20-35 Year 11-13 students based on scenarios from around the world – from film-making and piracy, to transporting chocolate
  • Students break into teams and work together to assess the risks associated with the above – they score points for correct answers
  • Finally, we talk about next steps, such as Apprenticeships or degrees – and offer students and teacher the opportunity to join the CII free discover membership. To see the introductory video to the session, please click here.
