Speakers for Schools Newsletter - June 2020


Students from Harris CofE Academy have benefited from Speakers for Schools talks in previous academic years and now can access these from home.  Below is an example of upcoming speakers and we recommend you check them out.  More will be listed on the website. 


The bp inspire me series features bp employees sharing their inspirational stories, related to eight key skills identified as essential for success in education and employment. This week sees the final week of this talk series.


Each session gives an insight into one of the skills when the speaker will bring to life how they have cultivated this through their experiences and how it helps them in their career today and its relevance to the workplace. These skills have been identified as a universal framework of essential skills by the Skills Builder Foundation.
