What do you want to do with your life? What are your strengths? What inspires you? What is your dream job?
The time will come when you need to ask yourself these questions. After all, you don’t want to just ‘end up’ somewhere and become one of the 80% of people who don’t enjoy or care for their jobs, do you?
Below, Sir Ken Robinson, Educationalist & International Adviser talks briefly about finding you ‘element’. Scott Dinsmore, owner of the ‘Live Your Legend’ website, discusses how to find and do work that you love.
We believe that for students to have a better understanding of different industries, they should spend time meeting industry professionals and gaining ‘insider knowledge’.
In order to achieve this we will visit partner companies in different industries for delegates to gain an insight into working within those industries.
As well as visiting and being introduced to each company, delegates will learn teamwork & leadership skills as they compete in small groups with tasks & challenges devised by each company. It could be solving an industry problem or designing a new product or service. The important thing is to learn more about the company’s industry sector.
Under guidance from course leadership, each group will then have to give a presentation at the end of each day to management & staff at each representative company.
*The second week will consist of 5 different industries, ARCHITECTURE, GAME/SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT, PERFORMING ARTS, EMERGENCY SERVICES & HOSPITALITY. Delegates can participate both weeks, if they wish.
This week’s experience is for students aged 13 and over, who are Czech and/or English speakers. Delegates will be divided into groups of 10 visiting different companies each day.
Price: 2950Kc / week (or 5500Kc / 2 weeks) Please note: lunch is NOT included in the price.
