Get Involved: Students

‘What Skills Will Young People Need For Work in 2030?’ Campaign and Talk Series

Calling state school students

From March 2018, we will be launching our national campaign – ‘What Skills Will Young People Need for Work in 2030?’.

Over 30 of the UK’s leading figures from tech, arts, culture, business and more giving talks in state schools across the country – we’re also looking for students to take part in the campaign and spark conversations around this hot topic.

How students can get involved

If you’re a state school student, then there’s a number of ways you can join the campaign:

  1. Students have your say! Have you ever wanted to ask top professionals what their secret is to success? Well now’s your chance. Follow us on TwitterFacebook and Instagram to find out how you can get involved.
  2. Join in the conversation: Look out for #Skills2030 and get involved. Is your school hosting one of our talks? Why not post and video or picture! Be sure to tag us @Speakers4Schools on Instagram or tweet us on @speakrs4schools and don’t forget to use #Skills2030.
