INSIGHT SESSIONS

You can inspire our students to make informed decisions about their future by hosting an insight session, providing an insider’s view into your organisation, the work that you do and the industry you work in. Insight sessions give students the chance to network with your graduates and staff and the opportunity to ask questions and find out what life and a career at your organisation is really like.

Why offer an insight session?

Help the next generation to shape their career plans

Identify future talent and promote your organisation and your opportunities

Build a relationship with the University of Westminster and our students

What can the student do?

We can advise on how to design the insight experience to make the most of the opportunity. This could include meetings and networking sessions, tours of your organisation, simulation exercises or presentations and Q&A panels.

Where would the insight session take place?

Insight sessions usually take place on employer premises, to give the students an understanding of your work in context. In light of Covid-19, we are expecting all sessions for 2020 to take place online and we are happy to explore this virtual option with you. 

Who can offer insight days?

We are seeking offers from host organisations in all employment sectors.

How long should the insight session last?

To make it meaningful for students, we recommend a minimum time commitment of half a day.

When will it take place?

The exact period will be discussed and confirmed between the organisation and the relevant work placement team. The insight session will involve a small number of students.

How to apply?

Please complete this form.

How much does it cost?

Insight sessions have no cost for the host organisation. Where students are attending employer premises, it is at the discretion of the organisation to offer lunch and/ or travel expenses. If the insight session takes place on site, employers will also need to have relevant insurance and provide a health and safety induction,
