December update from AWRC

New project announcement – AWRC Innovation Futures

As part of our work in the community, we are pleased to announce a new project that will help young people residing in South Yorkshire to explore career opportunities within health and wellbeing, with a particular emphasis placed on the innovation ecosystem.

As part of this pilot, we will work with a group of 20 young people to broaden their understanding of different careers across five domains:

  • Academia
  • Industry
  • Investment
  • Healthcare
  • Intermediary services

The group will hear from speakers across the five domains and we will seek to support each individual to discover at interest and help them draw up an action plan to progress this with personal development funding available to facilitate further learning. For those ready for work, we are working with the ICS workforce team, who have live vacancies, to help individuals begin their careers in the sector.
