I'm reading: Insightful career experience

Insightful career experience

Insight days enable students to better understand what a career involves, helping them develop their skills, and work out what career they might be suited to. The days involve visiting a workplace, meeting different staff, and often taking part in exercises or workplace activity.

Many of these days are set up thanks to alumni who work with their employer and colleagues to organise the days. Thanks to alumni, students benefited from insight days at a wide variety of organisations last year, including video game developer Square Enix, wealth management company LGT Vestra, Longley Farm dairy, the Ministry of Housing and Wigan Council.
