Invite a volunteer speaker into your school to give young people an insight into jobs in a particular sector.

What is an Industry Insight Event?

An Industry Insight Event gets young people thinking about what a job in a particular sector would be like. It will introduce the types of jobs available and the tasks that people working in this job would be expected to perform.

What is the impact of an Industry Insight Event?

Industry Insight Events are a fantastic opportunity to contextualise the general career education learning of young people and to start rooting this information in a specific sector. This narrowing process helps young people to make informed choices about their, subject choices, further or higher educational options and to become passionate about their future path. Industry Insight Events are general enough to provide opportunities for larger groups but specific enough to really find, fuel and spark ideas about their future in minds of young people.
