At Insight we are passionate about technology and how it can enhance people’s lives, therefore we encourage our teammates to volunteer to inspire the next generation of technologists and engineers. Any of our teammates are welcome to register as "“STEM Ambassadors” who can then choose which science, technology, engineering or maths-based activities to support students or teachers with.
To date, Insight’s STEM Ambassadors have been involved with careers events, mock interviews, coding ‘hackathons’ and work experiences programmes. Insight is also been involved with some longer term STEM partnerships which include:
University Academy 92 (UA92):
With advancements in digital technology developing at a rapid pace, we acknowledge the digital skills gap and the opportunities it presents. Partnering with UA92, we are helping the academy shape a new-age curriculum, placing a greater focus on digital upskilling and talent development to accelerate young people’s careers.
Through our partnership with Giraffe Learning, an organisation that acts as a bridge between education and the corporate world, we are working with a number of local schools to provide guidance, support and advice to improve school leavers’ employability. This helps us to better understand the needs and aspirations of the future workforce by giving young people, from all walks of life, the confidence and skills required to pursue a career in technology.
Working closely with Together Trust, a charity that offers care, support and special education to children, adults and families, we support individuals with learning and physical disabilities by offering work experience to increase their employability and future career opportunities.
