Whether you want to be an architect, engineer, construction worker, plumber, electrician, TV broadcaster, producer, tour guide, chef, artist, doctor, scientist, curator, software developer, event manager, sports coach, accountant, hotel manager or set up your own tech enterprise, or boutique they’ll be an opportunity for you on the Park.
To get people ready for these opportunities we working with Future Foundations and partners to run a Legacy Careers (IAG) programme in local schools. Those participating in 2014 are St Angela’s Ursuline Shool & Stratford School Academy in Stratford, Skinners’ Academy in Hackney, Bethnal Green Academy in Tower Hamlets and Walthamstow Academy & Connaught School for Girls in Waltham Forest.
The aim is to inspire and inform young people about the vast range of careers open to them at a time they are choosing their GCSE options. Students will learn from direct experiences and encounters with volunteers from businesses operating in and around the Park to equip them with the confidence, motivation and skills they need to prepare for the world of work.
