INDUSTRY/TECHNICAL

Invite Business Leaders into your school to give young people information about the skills, knowledge and qualifications required by a sector or industry.

What is an Industry/Technical Event?


An Industry/Technical Event is a focused event in which young people can gain information about the skills, knowledge and qualifications required by a sector or industry.


These sorts of events are skills focused and targeted in their approach.

What is the impact of an Industry/Technical Event?


Because they are so focused, Industry/Technical Events have a significant impact on young people. It is important to ensure that the event is appropriate for the age and stage of the audience.


These events work best as part of a programme of experiences looking at several industries, or as a targeted event for interested senior stage pupils. These are powerful events which can open up new possibilities, and validate aspirations, for young people.
