Learning Live – English in Industry
English is used in so many roles in vastly different ways such as marketing, journalism, legal, medical industry, public relations, web development and so many more. Presenters showcased how English is used in a very diverse manner. They discussed using English in a variety of forms and consideration for audiences such as a casual style for social media and much more formal for reports to senior management. The importance of communication with stakeholders was highlighted, together with the use of English in different cultures and how important it is to be aware of cultural differences.

“It was a very different way of communication as we had not yet been a part of one of these conferences so it was interesting to see how much we could learn from just an online video call.”

Learning Live builds the following

Students are empowered to select subject areas that are  relevant for them, resulting in a more engaging and meaningful careers education experience.

Schools can reach a larger numbers of students using fewer resources and  students who might not otherwise have had access to careers guidance receive exposure.

Industry mentors experience meaningful and fulfilling connection with young people using an online model that supports connection with a diverse range of young people.

Communities gain direct exposure to mentors and  industries from outside the immediate community, results in increased social capital and knowledge and understanding of worlds of work not bound by geography.
