As your students progress through their education, they will begin to prepare for life after school. You can use The Public Jobs Schools Resource Kit to support your students in learning about the amazing career opportunities in the public sector.

"It's the culture of the school."

The Pitch – The Schools Advertising Challenge is a fun and engaging competition for students to put their learning into action. To enter, they create a short video promoting the public sector to their fellow students. What’s more, there are amazing experiential prizes up for grabs!

Challenge your students to express their creative, digital and communication skills while learning about future career opportunities in the public sector! Enter by December 7th and be in with a chance to win a €200 voucher for your school!

In making their entry students may decide to:

  • Pick someone they know who works in the public sector and pitch/sell their career path and role.
  • Promote a specific public sector role that they are interested in, learned about or researched.
  • Surprise us! Profile a role that no one expects to find in the public sector.
  • Show the range of opportunities and the many benefits of a career in the public sector.

To give your students a helping hand here are some of the criteria we will be looking for in the best videos:

  • The overall Concept for their advertisement - is it clear, factual and relevant?
  • Unique Selling Point (USP). Remember the aim is to encourage their peers to further explore careers in the public sector
  • Creativity - your advertisement should stand out
  • Watch Zainab Boladale's handy tips to out from the crowd!
