A Virtual Event Like No Other.

If you haven’t registered please look at the teacher’s pack attached to get a better idea of the nature and extent of this online event and its value as a resource to schools, pupils and teachers. This event designed for TY is also of great value to LCA students and will be of benefit to all students through their TY and careers teachers.

TYTALKS21 Teachers Pack

To those schools who have registered please be advised that it is necessary to upload a CSV file of the students email addresses to the registration page using your school’s TYTalks21login to enable the students to get full access to all parts of the event and particularly to the booths. It will also ensure that the students will be able to take part in the scavenger hunt and fully participate in all the aspects of the event.

Ibec and this platform are fully GDPR compliant so there is no GDPR issue with uploading the student’s emails. This will also give the students registered a further 90 days access to the resources on the platform. Teachers will also have access to the platform for a further 90 days. A certificate of attendance for the teachers to sign for the students will be available and can be used as part of each students TY or LCA portfolio.

Finally, for those who have registered and who’s school is not in a position of financial disadvantage, it would be very much appreciated if the invoice issued for the registration could be dealt, please.

About the event

Inspire and Inform
TYTalks21 is an exciting new virtual event that has been created for all Transition Year students in Ireland. The event is designed to inspire and motivate students for the future of work.

Post-Covid, TY students will need to move forward with their education and career choices. The team at Ibec has partnered with the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principles (NAPD) to create a half-day immersive event for all of Ireland’s 45,000 TY students. The event will give insight into the world of work, the skills of the future, different career pathways and so much more.

Listen to futurists, business minds, educators, young leaders, and entrepreneurs. There will be a virtual Expo area showcasing learning and skills partners, an industries discovery zone and enjoy a fun scavenger hunt for cool prizes.
