Our fantastic "Day in the life of..." taster sessions are run over two days and provide you with inspiration and experience of your chosen sector.
They’re all led by industry specialists, so you can benefit from their knowledge and expertise. You will have the opportunity to visit a site and/or informally discuss the potential job roles with employers, getting valuable insider knowledge for your CV.
We’re running these tasters as a direct response to local industry requests for support to find the right candidates for jobs and training programmes.
Some of the workshops we have covered to date include Pink Boutique who delivered a fashion industry taster, St Cuthbert’s Care focusing on social care Foresight who provided an insight into the digital and gaming industry and also Keepmoat Homes providing a interactive session on the house building industry. Next up in the series we have partnered with Newcastle University to present a look at the variety of non academic roles on offer within our world class University.
New programmes are being developed all the time including the energy sector, gaming, and childcare. If there's a sector you’d like to explore, let us know!
“I feel motivated and inspired. It was great to be able to speak to people doing the actual jobs - there are lots of aspects I am interested in - too hard to choose!”
