We organised a regional good practice and dissemination event in November 2016 (held at the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield), to share labour market information with schools and careers advisers and to market our partner’s HE courses to schools. All of our resources presented at the ‘Resourceful Futures’ event are based around case study videos of local graduates working in the Digital and Engineering sectors.
Working closely with the LEP and Engineering UK, we understand the importance of exposing young people to the growth sectors in their area, whilst also designing resources that focused on exploring their personal career path.
Feedback on the Resourceful Futures event was extremely positive from the range of advice and guidance staff present – highlighting the value of our pilot resources and their potential application and use in school.
Take a look at the video of the Resourceful Futures launch event to hear more about what teachers, advisers and business representatives have to say about the role of our resources in inspiring your future workforce.
