location University Of Birmingham School | 6:30 PM-8 PM Wednesday 21 March 2018 (BST)

How do we educate young people for a future where work will be very different from today?

How do we educate young people for a future where work will be very different from today?

The University of Birmingham School is a new secondary school that has been open for three years. At this early stage in our journey, as our first pupils reach Year 9, we have the opportunity to create a long term Careers Strategy that is carefully considered, evidence based, and designed to produce meaningful outcomes for our pupils.

As a school we are working towards creating a ‘stable careers programme which is known and understood by students, parents, teachers, governors and employers’ as recommended by the Careers and Enterprise company.

We’d like to bring our community on this journey with us, and help to inform and shape our thinking.

Our pupils will turn 18 and leave school in 2020. If they go on to University, they will leave formal education in 2023. The world of work is changing rapidly, with factors such as globalisation, automation, and urbanisation affecting the work landscape significantly. Currently around a fifth of people work in occupations that are likely to shrink by 2030.

How do we collectively best prepare our young people for a future that will look vastly different from the present?

We invite you to join us to discuss this important topic with school leaders, businesses and other regional organisations, and help shape the direction of careers education for young people in Birmingham.
