Speakers for Schools

As part of our commitment to providing students with a wide range of opportunities to prepare them for life beyond school, we have joined Speakers for Schools – a national network helping schools and students access influential people and opportunities to help raise aspirations. This service allows students to access free events, virtual talks, resources and wider careers programmes including virtual work experience opportunities. All opportunities will be listed below. Students in Year 10-13 have been offered the option to register their interest for bespoke careers opportunities from Speakers for Schools, but will need to have completed the required school form (previously sent to parents/guardians) to support the application process – please ask Miss Dickson for more information.

Watch here a variety of successful (and some famous) professionals speak about their work and how to achieve within their industry.

Did you know that the British creative industries are booming? There are thousands of exciting job roles in areas such as film, computer games, fashion and more. That’s why we want you to know about the vast range of career opportunities on offer and feel inspired to go after them. Find out more here.
