What is this workshop about?
This is a 3-hour family workshop that aims to help young people understand the wide range of careers available to them and help them make an informed decision about their future career.
This workshop aims to answer the following questions – Which careers are available to young people today? What things should I consider when choosing a career? Which subjects will I need to choose at GCSE & A-level if I want to get into a certain career? Which professions, careers and industries are trending at the moment and have a high demand? What can I expect to earn in different careers?
During the workshop you will have the chance to hear from young professionals in a range of careers and understand the path that they took to reach their current position. By the end of the workshop you should have an idea of some the careers that may be suited to your strengths, abilities and your personality. You should also be able to take away some practical steps you can immediately use to achieve your career aspirations.

Feedback from previous attendees:
Meeting the panel helped me understand that I can enter any career that I want and I shouldn’t be put off if I’m struggling in a subject because I can change that if I work towards it – Lola, 16
It was an excellent day. Even as a parent, I ended up learning a lot as the panel really inspired me to keep encouraging my kids to aim for the stars – Mrs. Oni
