An excellent day at "A Capital Experience” with the Career Ready programme.
Career Ready students travelled to London, where they started their day at the Dominion Theatre, with other Career Ready students from across the UK. They were inspired by speakers that shared their personal experiences of the Career Ready Programme and how it had positively impacted upon their career progression into exciting positions with major corporate organisations, including BP International at Canary Wharf.
From the Dominion Theatre, the group then proceeded by Underground to their host employer, Aviva. An excellent employer visit. Students were greeted with lunch and refreshments on arrival, followed by presentation from Aviva's ‘Head of Underwriting' and ‘Early Careers Programme Consultant.' The presentation provided the students with valuable information about the insurance industry and associated career opportunities. Following this, they were delivered a Career Ready master class, "Communication and Networking”, which focussed on the development of these key employability skills. Two of Aviva's apprentices also shared their work-based learning experiences, including their challenges and achievements, which the students found very informative.
