Virtual Careers


Learn Live

Sessions will feature employers talking about careers in their industry, as well as providing advice on how to develop the skills that employers are looking for during lockdown. There will also be sessions on how to undertake a successful online interview and a discussion on progression to FE and University.  All of the sessions are free to attend and will be led by local business or education professionals, giving young people and parents/ carers opportunities to ask questions live online.  Each presenter will also set a challenge for participants to complete, so they will be able to go away and develop their employability skills further after the session has finished.

We would encourage students to watch these sessions live, however they will remain on the site for 12 months and questions can be submitted after broadcast. For more information
