Harper's advance to help future careers

At this time of year the “Harper on Tour” team would usually be travelling throughout the UK, at schools, colleges and soon, agricultural shows and other big events, sharing advice about the journey to university, making the right choices, student life and more.

But this year, so far, they can’t – so instead they have developed a series of virtual sessions which, as a result, are open to a much wider audience across more of the country.

Harper Advance is designed to help future professionals across food, farming, land management, engineering, business, environmental management and animal health connect to their future – exploring career options and some of the key information future university students need.

Sessions are currently scheduled until the end of June, with topics including: Climate Change; Innovation in Agriculture; Life as a Rural Chartered Surveyor; Food Careers; Hydroponics; and Women in Engineering.

You can explore sessions, and book, at harper.ac.uk/events

Rachel Brookes, Widening Participation Officer, says: “We hope Harper Advance will connect with students across the country.

“But the sessions are not just open to students. They will be also be helpful to teachers, careers advisors, parents and carers – anyone supporting young people’s career journeys. Anyone can sign up, watch and join in.”
