Description

We're once again working with representatives of UoE's Business School to deliver this day of industry and academic-led workshops and presentations for students in years 10-13, serving to highlight some of the careers, companies and courses young people may one day find themselves working in and for, and studying locally.

Students will benefit from hands-on, engaging workshops highlighting jobs and disciplines in the Finance sector, as well as information about studying at the University of Essex. We'll confirm workshop leaders nearer the date - last year's event saw representatives of the likes of Metrobank, RSA Insurance and DST taking part, as well as UoE academic staff showcasing the University's Bloomberg Trading Suite.

Thanks to attending this event, schools will be able to evidence the following Gatsby Indicators:

- Learning from career and labour market information
- Encounters with employers and employees
- Encounters with further and higher education

Students are asked to bring along a packed lunch on the day, and tea and coffee/soft drinks will be available throughout the day.
