Speed Networking With Industry – Rastrick High School, Tuesday 20th January 2015


  • Nature of event: small group work, fast passed sessions with informal Q&A.
  • Focus: to allow learners to explore progression, skills and competencies across a range of industry sectors and job roles.

AIM: The aim of the event is to help young people understand more about the world of work and identify the pathways and opportunities that are available to them upon leaving education. Whist taking part students also get a valuable opportunity to ask key questions, identify vital skills sets and gain a unique insight in to a wide variety of job roles that they may never have considered.

INDUSTRY PROFESSIONAL ROLE: When speaking to the students you should be sector focussed and be able to illustrate opportunities within your industry as well as being able to discuss your own personal progression and experiences within the industry to the present day.

Each session will be approximately 10 minutes in length and include a short informal introduction followed by a quick Q&A session that will focus on:

 the organisation you represent

 the role you have within the organisation

 the skills you use through your work

 benefits of working within the sector/for the company

 the route you have taken to get to your current position
