The careers support service "Work It" have developed a series of career talks connecting young people with stories from slightly older peers who have recently made that transition into the workplace from education.
These will come to you from a diverse range voices - apprentices, trainees and graduates from different backgrounds and ways of life, reflecting the variety of young people you support in your work.
First off, meet Bejay, Mia and Callum
Bejayis a 24 year old Entrepreneur from East London. His career story started at just 14 years of age by starting a lemonade stand in his school playground.
Mia is an 18 year old Campaign Planner at HomeServe in Walsall. She spent her whole life wanting a career in musical theatre, but changed her mind in Year 13. She tells us how she resisted the automatic option to go to university by trying out work experience – a decision which has changed her career for the better.
Callumis a 21 year old Claims Handler at Aviva in Norwich. Despite struggling with lessons at school, Callum shares his insight about how his love of people and socialising led him to a brilliant career.
Bejay, Mia and Callum are telling you their own story – and with that, we hope that these stories inspire and reassure young people like them within your cohorts about the world of work.
