ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
Being digitally savvy is becoming an essential part of many job descriptions today, but who knows what careers will exist in tomorrow’s tech-accelerated world? From music, fashion, retail, programming, manufacturing, or even finance, every workplace stands to be transformed.
By working with some of the world’s leading employers and speakers, this year’s Predict campaign will inform and inspire young people to explore the many opportunities that lie ahead in the digital and technology-enabled space.
Join us this June as we look at all manner of future careers – from the obvious contenders to new roles none of us would ever have dreamt of! Predict ’22 will help young people to navigate a world of new career possibilities and signpost them towards appropriate training and recruitment pathways.
“We are helping those young people become the most creative, adaptable and confident they can be, so that this rapidly changing and unpredictable world does not put obstacles in the way, but is a place of exciting unlimited opportunity.”
Robert Peston, Founder of Speakers for Schools

ABOUT SPEAKERS FOR SCHOOLS
Predict ’22 will be hosted and run by Speakers for Schools as part of our commitment to connect young people from all backgrounds across the UK to level up into new industries and future proof the next generation in a post-COVID economy.
Speakers for Schools was founded in 2010 by ITV’s Political Editor Robert Peston, and supported by the Law Family Charitable Foundation, with a mission to level the playing field for young people. It aims to end educational inequality by giving access to the same networks as the top fee-paying schools in the UK through inspirational talks and broadcasts, work placements, meaningful discounts and life-preparing opportunities.
