In the Know: Find your Inner Engineer!

We hope you had a good week? Have you noticed that your child is technically minded, skilled at science and mathematics, and good at problem-solving? If so, then maybe a career in Science or Engineering could work for them. This week we’re sharing a few opportunities that could spark that career conversation. Also, don’t forget to sign up for our Online Digital Challenges!

Help Share our Linkedin Post!
Today is Social Mobility Awareness Day and we’ve created a special LinkedIn post that we’d love for you to share with your professional network. As you know we’ve teamed up with Brit Insurance to help young people develop their employability skills. We’d like to reach many more parents and schools so that we can help more young people reach their career goals and gain online work experience. If you’re on LinkedIn and you’d like to help us spread the word to more schools and young people, please like this post or share it with your network
