Which Career?

An opportunity for students to meet a variety of STEM professionals and find out how they use maths and different skills at work.

Which Career?

Meeting professionals working in different roles will enable your students to question people from the world of work about how they use maths and different skills that are essential to their roles.

'Which Career?' supports National Careers Week #NCW2021 and is designed to inform your students about how maths is used in different careers and the importance of continuing to study maths after GCSE. 

We will be joined by 3 guests who will talk about their careers and take questions from the students.
The event will be repeated at different times to allow you to choose the event which best fits your timetable.

It is envisaged that the event will either be streamed into a classroom where the session is facilitated by the teacher, or that the teacher will share the link with their students for them to join online.

There will be opportunities for interaction during the session.

Duration

30 minutes per session. Sessions will go live 15 minutes before.
