Coffee with Uptree - webinar

What influences a young person's career decision?

Event details

Tuesday 29 November 2022
Online (Zoom)

We’ll be joined at our webinar by three Uptree alumni for a lively discussion on the factors that influenced their career decisions:

  • Hannah, degree apprentice at IBM
  • Jake, solicitor apprentice at Stephenson Harwood LLP
  • Hamza, Solicitor Apprentice, Norton Rose Fulbright

We’re also delighted to hear from Hannah’s mother who will share her journey of how initially she wasn't in favour of apprenticeships as a career choice and the factors that helped her to support Hannah's choice.

The aim of the session is to help employers learn more about the key influences on a student's career pathway decision. We’ll explore what could be done to support young people and their parents / guardians in their decision making.

Key takeaways from the session will include:

  • What attracts young people to apprenticeships
  • Misconceptions that exist amongst young people and parents about apprenticeships
  • What support and information young people and parents look for when making career decisions

This session is aimed at professionals related to learning & development, diversity & inclusion and Early Careers.
