  • aware of government publications on trends in STEM and investment strategies
  • able to consider career options relevant to your background and experience.

Next week, you will be exploring the changes that are happening in the way people work and, in particular, reviewing new ways of flexible and agile working that are becoming increasingly possible and widespread.
