Hidden Careers

This session aims to educate students on the breadth of career opportunities and diversity of industry professionals in the built environment sector, including women and BAME.

The sessions require a wide range of industry participants, from skilled tradespeople to professionals. 

Students attempt to guess the careers of 5 industry professionals who work in a variety of different built environment careers. Students will do so by interviewing each professional in groups, asking yes-or-no questions (suggestions provided) to glean as much useful information as they can in 5 minutes. Afterwards, each volunteer will reveal whether the students guessed correctly, and talk about their careers and how they got into them.

This resource is provided by our partner Construction Youth Trust.
