The Real Conversation
The Real Conversation is a Welsh Government call to action to bring together business leaders, young people and other stakeholders to discuss specific issues. The aim is to gain a better understanding of each other’s views and opinions on various policy issues.
It is an opportunity for businesses, individuals, teachers and trainers to discuss the real and perceived barriers to employment in the current climate and to explore solutions to enable young people to access work and employers to recruit successfully.
The next 'Real Conversation' will be taking place on:
Thursday 7 March 2013, Venue Cymru, Llandudno
There are a limited number of places available. To avoid disappointment, place a booking via our online booking form.
Why get involved in the Real Conversation?
If you are a young person
The Real Conversation is your chance to speak directly to Welsh employers and to understand the opportunities available and ways to get into work. Want a good job? Interested in a particular career path? Find out what separates a great candidate from the rest and how to quickly get your foot in the door…
If you are an employer
Come and listen first-hand to what young people have to say about your industry. Don't think that young people have the skills you need? Think they are disillusioned about the real world of work? The Real Conversation is your opportunity to influence today's youth and, at the same time, perhaps be surprised as to what young people actually have to offer your business.
If you are involved directly or indirectly in the delivery of skills / education
Are young people being given practical opportunities to develop business relevant skills? Are we delivering useful or useless qualifications in Wales? How important and valuable is careers advice in schools? Questions such as these form the basis of a great 'real conversation'. Come along to the next event - it's your opportunity to learn from employers and young people in an engaging session that will help to inform the future delivery of our skills and education initiatives in Wales.
