The ESB's 'What's Your Thing?' booklets will help inform and inspire students in the career choices they make by providing an insight into the different roles available, the skills that are in demand and what salary you might expect to earn. These have been based on seven priority sectors which contribute significantly to the local economy but are facing significant skills shortages:
- Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering
- Financial & Related Services
- IT, Digital & Creative
Across these exciting sectors there are a wide range of job opportunities available all requiring a different mix of skills and qualifications. Someb of these jobs include; Aerospace Engineers, Social Media Executive, Computer Animators, Investment Analysts, Control Tower Manager, Quantity Surveyors and Care Managers.
To support these booklets we have created two lesson plans for your use to support with your careers information delivery as part of the curriculum. These will encourage your students to consider their future and realise their potential to translate their education into valuable skills which will support in achieving an incredible career.
In addition to this, we are also releasing our 'What's Your Thing?' School's Presentation which was designed to help students absorb more content visually, allowing them to access information on the covered career opportunities in the booklet in a different format.
The lesson plans and presentation are both now available to download.
