Spotlight Talks are a fantastic opportunity for young people of all ages, and especially during these difficult times. It was well received by all of our students, including one who produced his own computer programme after watching one of the talks.
In an education environment, if we’ve got external speakers saying the same things as the teachers, it might help everything to click. When the students are listening to someone who is in industry, like an architect, who can talk about where they started off from, how they got to where they are, and the highs and the lows of their career so far it resonates more.
