This event gives students an insight into contemporary industries and jobs of the future, showcasing the wide range of job roles available in science, technology and engineering aimed at Year 8/9 students. By attending this event you will be meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks 2, 4, 5 & 7. Below are some great reasons for you to attend.
The event is lively but very carefully organised. Students move in small groups, led by an industry “Ambassador” and their teacher through the Innovation Zone, Insight Exhibition and Challenge Zones. It’s a powerful intervention just before students make GCSE subject choices, dispelling gender stereotypes and shifting perceptions of careers teenagers may have considered “difficult”, “geeky” or “boring”.
By highlighting different entry levels, including those for apprentices and technicians as well as graduates, we encourage young people of all abilities.
