NEW ✨ Live and on-demand Class Chats for your students!

Bring an Amazon employee to your classroom to help your students better understand what it’s like to work in the tech industry... and what it takes to get there!

Exposing students to in-demand careers and diverse career role models can bring them new possibilities, inspiration, and motivation. Amazon employees work across a broad range of technical and non-technical roles. Class Chats, whether a live or on-demand experience, can help students envision future careers that they may not have even heard of.

Our Class Chats volunteers will share their personal career stories and insight about working at a large tech company, as well as answer your students’ career questions. Amazon are collaborating with Springpod to bring your class a fantastic career exploration experience.
What do teachers need to know before booking?
On-demand experiences can be accessed at any time. These are interactive, pre-recorded sessions, which include a student activity related to the relevant job role. Teachers will have access to a toolkit with supporting handouts, model answers to the activity, and a glossaries.
For live events, teachers register for a specific role, date and time. Students will have the chance to ask questions at the end of the presentation over chat. Teachers will receive a recording of the live event once it’s finished. Recordings of live events will also be accessible on the website.
All you need is internet access, a computer or laptop, a projector or smartboard, and a speaker.
Class Chats last 30 - 45 minutes.
Class Chats are free and open to all students. They are designed for secondary school students.
Students can also access Class Chats independently.


Will my Amazon volunteer be a computer science professional or could they have a non-tech role at Amazon?

In an effort to show students the wide variety of roles in tech, we have recruited a diverse range of employees to participate in Class Chats. Some volunteers may be a software development engineer while others may be more focused on marketing or programme support. Computer science impacts all jobs here at Amazon, so we hope your volunteer can illuminate the vast array of opportunities that exist in the tech sector.

What ages can participate?

Class Chats are accessible for all students, but they have been designed for secondary school students.

Will I be able to ask questions/do I have to have my microphone on?

You will have a chance to ask questions at the end of Live session. These questions are typed out and then read to the presenter by the host of the live talk. There is no need to speak, and all student microphones will be muted for the duration of the live webinar.

How will I join a live session?

You will be emailed with instructions and a link to join your live session.

What software is required for Live Class Chats?

The chat is browser-based. It requires no installations or downloads, and you will access the Class Chat through one simple link.

What happens if I can't attend a Live Class Chat?

All live talks will be available as recordings. You can access these using the same link as the access for the live event. If anyone misses the live webinar, a recording will be available for you to access within 24 hours of the live event finishing.
