TYTalks21 is an exciting new virtual event that has been created for all Transition Year students in Ireland. The event is designed to inspire and motivate students for the future of work.
Post-Covid, TY students will need to move forward with their education and career choices. The team at Ibec has partnered with the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principles (NAPD) to create a half-day immersive event for all of Ireland’s 45,000 TY students. The event will give insight into the world of work, the skills of the future, different career pathways and so much more.
Listen to futurists, business minds, educators, young leaders, and entrepreneurs. There will be a virtual Expo area showcasing learning and skills partners, an industries discovery zone and enjoy a fun scavenger hunt for cool prizes.
