Would you, one of your colleagues, friends or family members be willing to deliver a working lunch? This can be within any employment sector. We are aiming to enable our students to meet professionals to inspire them so they can make the right decision when it comes to their own career path.
Working lunches are a chance to meet some of our students and discuss with them your own experiences and dealings within the working world after leaving school. The event is informal in nature. The aim of the Working Lunches is to give our students some ideas and knowledge about their options and future after they leave the school and even get the chance to start to build connections to help them later on.
The topics covered could be wide-ranging, but primarily working lunches will focus on your own background in terms of education and career experiences – how that has enabled you to get to the position you are in now, as well as any advice you can give to students who aspire to follow the same or a similar career pathway.
Working lunches are held during term time. They last approximately 30 minutes and usually take place during lunchtime. The events are advertised to students within the school and also targeted specifically at those who have already expressed interest in the sector in their Career Profiles.
To find out about upcoming working lunches, please keep an eye out for posters on the academy screens or follow our tweets from @CareersVictory! Where an event matches interests in your Career Profile, you will receive a personal invitation.
