In The Know: Connect, Discover, Create!

This week we’d like to move the focus to the importance of early career engagement. With the current lockdown situation, many schools have had to cancel their careers day, which has left plenty of parents and young people missing out on valuable career information and opportunities to explore different career paths. This is why we’ve put together some incredible opportunities to get your child started on finding the right career! Read on to find out more information about exciting opportunities that will help guide your child to a successful future.

Don’t miss out on the Online Careers Day!
The GT Scholars Careers Day has grown in popularity over the past few years and this year, we’re moving online! This will allow more young people and parents the opportunity to gain support from industry professionals working with companies such as PWC, Goldman Sachs, E-ON, and Atkins Global. The event takes place online on 27th February 2021 and we’ll be announcing more speakers and workshops soon! It’s free for young people and their parents, and tickets must be booked in advance.
