INSIGHT DAYS

Insight Days are like university open-days.....but for young people thinking about Apprenticeships and employment options.
There are a whole bunch of them running over the next few weeks and I thought you might find it helpful if I shared the details of the ones I've seen. The majority are online, and last for an hour or so.
Here are the details of some of the ones coming up for you to check out...and if now isn't the right time, then I'm just keen for you to know that these sort of events take place so you can look for them in the future.
