Adviza has launched the first five of a series of short videos called ‘What I Wish I Knew’ to give young people an insight into the working world.  Young employees from different industries and a range of entry levels have been videoed to talk about how they got into their job, what surprised them about work and what advice they would give to school pupils who are thinking about their career options. 

The videos have been created for schools across the Thames Valley (Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire) to use with their pupils as part of the Inspiration Agenda. Once the project is completed the young people videoed will reflect a range of job roles and industries available across the Thames Valley, as well as showing the diversity of entry routes/qualification levels in the local workforce. 

The Inspiration Agenda calls for employers, schools and colleges to work together to inspire young people and raise their career aspirations.  Our National Careers Service Partnership Managers support schools in the Thames Valley with this by helping them develop links with employers and other organisations in their area.

The first five videos are available to view online through YouTube as a resource for schools, young people and others. To view the videos click here and for further information about the Inspiration Agenda please contact:
