HOP Webinars for students

During the COVID-19 lockdown, schools across the UK were unable to meet the requirement to provide students with at least one meaningful encounter with an employer per year, traditionally achieved through careers talks and work experience opportunities. These encounters are a vital part of careers education, with research linking them to increased motivation, aspiration, and a greater chance for future success in the workplace.

So to support this Hertfordshire Opportunities Portal (HOP) have launched a new series of webinars featuring interviews with local employers. 

HOPinto Video - Film, Media & Creative

A set of videos focusing on Hertfordshire's Film, Media and Creative sector.

T Levels are qualifications combining classroom learning, alongside an industry placement and they are designed for young people as an option following GCSEs (post-16). See attachments below on the new Technical Level qualifications.
