We know that the world of work in the future will look different to the world of work today with technology and AI some of the many factors impacting the future job market. How do young people’s aspirations match the jobs likely to be available to them and how can we support and influence their aspirations and understanding of the world of work?
Research from Education and Employers shows employer engagement activities within schools has a positive impact on young people – it’s also of interest to organisations as they seek to diversify their future talent pipeline and fill skills shortages.
But how can you achieve these twin aims simply and cost effectively?

Katy will tell us how this has enabled staff to really help shape the school agenda whist developing their leadership skills.
