NOTTINGHAM CITY SCHOOL TEACHERS - AN EXCITING DISCOVERY WORKSHOP FOR YOUR STUDENTS

(Please ignore the closing date as it does not apply to this opportunity - it is for internal purposes only)

We are excited to announce that we are holding a Discovery Workshop for 15–17-year-olds who live in Nottingham, the opportunity to discover what it is like to work in local government.

Local Governments, also known as Councils, are responsible for a range of vital services for residents and businesses. This includes transport, social care, school admissions, housing, planning, and waste collection; they are also responsible for lesser-known services such as licensing, economic development, and pollution control.

Nottingham City Council, one of the largest employers in Nottingham, will be hosting the Discovery Workshop and will provide an insight into:

· The role of the City Council and the types of job roles that are available

· What it’s like to work for Nottingham City Council

· How to apply for a role in the City Council including Apprenticeships

There will also be the opportunity to ask questions and really engage with employees of the council.

This Discovery Workshop is open to students from Year 9 upwards and the online virtual session will be delivered on Friday 16th July from 09:00 am to 10:30 am and the link to join will be available directly from Speakers for Schools.

Schools and Colleges that are interested in this opportunity should email experience@speakersforschools.org and Quote ID No 1737 to register your school/college and students.

We look forward to seeing you!
