Students at School 21 worked with The Met to research the question: “how attractive is the Metropolitan Police as an employer”. Students met with a variety of different teams, learned about different roles, made vlogs and produced research to inform The Met on the ways in which they might engage a younger audience and attract young people into future roles. This was presented to senior members of the Met and New Scotland Yard.
