We are offering schools employer led sessions to enable students in S5 and S6 to explore careers in investment management.

Our live virtual careers sessions are 15 minutes, 30 minutes or 45 minutes and are a perfect introduction to investment management. Students will gain an overview of the sector, career pathways and advice on how to navigate a route in.

  • The 15-minute session is perfect for an assembly, tutorial slot or similar for a brief introduction and exploration of Investment20/20.

  • The 45-minute session includes an Investment Ambassador (an industry professional) who will share their own career story.

Virtual delivery options:

  • If a real time, virtual session isn’t possible due to technology access at your school or college we can send you a lesson plan that can be facilitated by a teacher or careers adviser. The session is delivered in fifteen to twenty minutes and contains two short films. Full facilitator notes and a PowerPoint deck are provided. We also provide an email with a summary and useful links which can be sent to students by the teacher as a follow up.
