Description

Future Forward: Please join us to explore and celebrate how the Newcastle community is preparing students for the future of work.

At this event, there will be a keynote from Sherry Coutu CBE, the award-winning entrepreneur rated as the most influential person in tech by organisations as diverse as Computer Weekly, Wired Magazine and Barclays.

Sherry will release new research and insights about the labour market in Newcastle and the North East, and cover the extraordinary ways educators are bringing the world of work into the classroom to inspire the next generation.

The keynote will start at 5.30pm and will also feature examples of best practice in careers and enterprise education from schools and colleges in Newcastle and the North East, including Consett Academy, Hetton School, Grindon Hall Christian School, Heworth Grange Comprehensive School, Bridgewater Primary School, Canning Street Primary School, Gosforth Academy, Heaton Manor School, Longbenton Community College, St Thomas More Roman Catholic Academy, and Whitley Bay High School.

This scenescetter will be followed by quick fire contributions from headteachers, business and students themselves, on the impact of different types of student-employer encounters.

Once the formal proceeding close at 6.15pm, please join us for drinks, canapes, networking and music until 7.30pm. It will be a great opportunity to build new friendships and connections with fellow educators, business leaders and key influencers in the North East at the first gathering of the holiday season.
