Mothers & Daughters Session - My Skills My Life


Who : Year 9 & Older

When : Wednesday 5 pm

What : Brought to you by Esh Group 

Only 23% of people working in core Science Technology Engineering & Maths (STEM) occupations in the UK are women.   Come and have a chat over a cup of tea.  Get a taste of the array of careers using STEM skills in the North East.  We’ve chosen to highlight four different areas – digital; advanced manufacturing, energy and utilities / construction, all of which are recognised as important to the success of the North East economy.

You and your daughter will be able to find out about all those things you want to know, or maybe didn’t know you wanted to know: what is it really like to work in different jobs; how people decided what they wanted to do; what they had to do to get their jobs; what their salary prospects are and anything else that interests you.  Mums play are very influential in daughters career choices, which is why we’ve included you.  Dads and sons are also welcome.  Come and have your eyes opened to some different possibilities.
40 Places.
