Student in work

A quick history lesson

At Opus we believe in creating a place where everyone works to make things better for each other. But what does ‘better’ really mean? Well to us, it means fair, diverse, accessible, independent and heard. And the world of employment has a big part to play. So that’s why we created Ductu, to help start young SEND adults on their journey into paid and sustainable employment.

We also understand the importance work experience plays in boosting confidence and building awareness, which is why we believe starting that journey during school years has never been more important. That’s where Ductu comes in. It helps manage students’ expectations of a workplace environment in an easy and interactive way, while providing a wealth of time-saving resources for teachers, SENCO leads and career advisors who are more time-poor than ever before.

So, how does it work?

Simply put, Ductu provides access to a host of interactive videos covering everything from mock interviews and workplace tours, to a ‘day in the life of’ stories from some of the UK’s biggest brands. Supported by handy lesson plans and activity sheets, accessible from school or home, they will help prepare students for working life. And that’s really just for starters.
