The Highlights of EY smarts future programme

  • 1.  The Highlights of EY smarts future programme

    After the successful completion of the two editions of EY smart futures programme over summer, we can now share some of the highlights from this valuable partnership 🎓:

    - The students worked together to develop innovative ideas during a Dragon's Den style challenge. Once completed, they had to present their ideas to a panel of judges. When asked about what their favourite active of the whole programme had been, most of the students chose this one - it was a huge success!! 

    - Thanks to an interactive session focused on RPA, & careers in tech, the vast majority of students stated that they now know the skills needed to get a job in tech. By the end of the session, the number of students who wanted to work in automation doubled.

    - The students took part in a carefully designed and exciting work experience placement at Blue Prism. During the duration of the programme, the students were able to meet people across the business with different professional backgrounds, which provided them with a wider vision of the possibilities of their future in technology.

    - All the students presented their personal projects on their final day in front of their mentors and Blue Prism members involved in the programme. Everyone agreed that both the quality of ideas and the delivery of presentations was thoroughly impressive!

    These are some of the main highlights of the programme, but it is not the end! Although the programme is now over, the students can enjoy 10 months of mentoring with a Blue Prism volunteer, who will guide them through their career goals and aspirations.

    If you would like to know more details on how the programme went or would like to suggest any other of initiatives, please feel free to comment below 😊
