There is a clear link between employer engagement and students’ future employability. A student who has encounters with the world of work is 86% more likely to be in employment or training and will go on to earn 18% more than their peers who did not have such opportunities.
In this breakfast event, held in partnership with Springpod, we learned how to attract and engage the next generation of STEM talent. Early school engagement is key, we learned, while a change in curriculum to promote practical learning will help better expose students to the vast opportunities of a career in STEM.
Two great case studies were shared by Amy Smith, Head of Talent at Framestore, and Lord Kenneth Baker, Former Secretary of State for Education, while Springpod co-founder Sam Hyams shared findings from the State of Careers Education Report – a study of secondary school students’ fears and expectations from the world of work.
