Generation Innovation energises the imaginations and aspirations of young people in Northern Ireland by increasing their knowledge of 21st-century skills and awareness of future careers in innovation.
We believe young people are central to unlocking Northern Ireland’s future as a globally renowned knowledge economy. That’s why we put them at the heart of our inspirational community of entrepreneurs, companies and education leaders.
The Work Experience Programme is for ambitious 17-18 year olds interested in upskilling for the jobs of the future. Students receive Design Thinking training over the course of five days, learning how to work as part of a new team made up of students from across Northern Ireland. The new skills are then put to the test to solve a company challenge, developing a solution before pitching it to the partner company and their fellow students.
Delivered online, students will improve skills such as communication, team building, resilience, problem-solving and creativity.
Over the five days of programme, students are guaranteed to learn in a fun, energetic and highly engaging way that will inspire and empower them for the future.
