HEAR what young people had to say about predict '21

“I really enjoyed working with Spaceport Cornwall, during my experience I worked in a team to develop a new product using existing satellite technology to help the local community… Working on a project like this has further inspired me to pursue a career in aerospace engineering and allowed me to meet some people who do jobs similar to those I want later in life."

WHAT A LEADING EMPLOYER HAD TO SAY ABOUT PREDICT '21

“Speakers for Schools is a platform we will continue to use because it enables us to bring those interested in our more specialist roles together in a dynamic forum. It has been particularly useful for finding young people who are interested in IT, music and healthcare careers, and show

them a range of relevant careers of which they were not previously aware.

... It is a platform where young people are less afraid to come forward and find out about careers outside of their world of experience.”

Eleanor Brown

Manager, British Army Supporting Education
