This episode looks at the early careers space and delves into the response for young people going into the world of work, amidst the pandemic. You will hear from investors, entrepreneurs and graduate interns all interested in innovation around young people, skills development and employment in the age of Covid-19.
With internships, apprenticeships, and traditional volunteering opportunities all closing down to some extent; what opportunity is there to support young people better, and through the use of technology? We discuss this and more.
Plus, a message from the writer of our latest blog post, Richard Pettey, 'Advancing technology education in rural high schools across America'.
