As part of our Career Pathways Programme, we’re excited to be launching our new virtual Masterclass series. The first of these is in partnership with ITV, takes place on 10 June and is free for 14-19 year olds from anywhere in the UK to join.
The aim of our Masterclass series is to provide young people with breadth and depth about a sector and organisation and is invaluable for helping them to make better, more informed choices about their next steps and how to go about it. For companies, this is an opportunity to showcase their organisation and talk directly to a young, diverse potential talent pool about early career roles or apprenticeships. We can target regionally or nationally.
Robbie Morton, Senior Resourcing Manager at ITV says:
“Here at ITV, We’re embracing differences, making new things happen and delivering creativity. The world is changing – and we’re driving that change. We’re More than TV. We are delighted to be able to collaborate with Working Options in providing young people the opportunity to hear about the different opportunities available to them in the world of working for ITV. There is no better time than now to help support the futures of our young people.”
The one-hour virtual Masterclass allows companies to provide students with a deep dive into their sector, the career opportunities available in their industry and organisation, outline the qualifications needed and the skills, attributes and qualities they look for in recruits. Speakers will always include at least one employee who was recruited at entry-level into the organisation and the sessions feature an interactive Q&A session via the chat function with a call to action to live roles about to be advertised e.g. launching the recruitment for an apprenticeship programme.
If your company would like to speak to us about hosting a Masterclass please email Claire McMaster.
If you’re 14-19 you can register now for a free place on the Masterclass.
