Careers Taster Scheme 2017/18

Competitively selected current students will have the opportunity to choose a select number of organisations to visit, enabling them to explore different growth sectors.

Participants will:

    • Improve their employer networks
    • Develop an awareness of career options open to them whilst studying and upon graduation
    • Gain an insight into different sectors
    • Increase their confidence and commercial awareness

The Careers Taster Scheme aims to improve career choice by enabling visits to different employment sectors. As a result, applicants should demonstrate appropriate motivation for taking part.

"It’s been truly informative and enjoyable. Now I can say that I have a clearer view of my goals"

"Thanks for organising this - it actually helped me realise what field I'd be interested in, which has helped narrow down all the places I want to apply to"

"It has been an insightful and worthwhile journey on the Careers Taster Scheme and I would definitely recommend it to other students"
