Get Involved: Teachers and Educators
‘What Skills Will Young People Need For Work in 2030?’ Campaign and Talk Series
How schools can get involved
From March 2018, we will be launching our national campaign – ‘What skills will young people need for work in 2030?’.
Speakers for Schools is a special network of the UK’s leading figures giving their time in state schools each year to help inspire and encourage young people in their future ambitions. For this special series, over 30 of the UK’s top professionals from tech, arts, culture and business will be speaking in schools and we will be sharing their unique insights and advice in the hopes to help students feel more equipped for the future. You can sign up below for a chance to host future events with speakers.
We will be sharing the best tips, highlights and resources from these talks to all of our S4S schools throughout and following the campaign. See below for more details on how your school can get involved:
- Register to be eligible for hosting our speakers: If you’re a teacher at a state school (11-18 yrs) and you’re not a member of our network, sign up here so we can help you access free talks from leading figures.
- Follow the campaign on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram: We will be sharing our favourite pieces of advice, tips and highlights from our speakers’ talks on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages. Make sure you follow us so that you don’t miss a post. If you’re posting, remember to use #Skills2030.
- Resources from Skills 2030 campaign: Further content and resources related to skills that young people will need in 2030 such as lesson plans, classroom tasks and activities from the campaign will be released in due course. Make sure you watch this space for more updates!
