There were opportunities to meet a range of professionals, get an overview of their experiences working for BT and listen to their advice on which routes students can take towards a career in tech.

The Insight Day shed light on some of the different job roles within BT, exploring some of the key skills that BT looks for in its employees, and highlighting the values at the heart of the company. The programme also included a vital pathways module, to advise students on what to do next if interested in a tech career, how to apply to BT, and the different apprenticeship programmes available to school leavers.
