Since 2011, York St John University (YSJU) has run an annual one-day ‘Careers using Languages’ conference for schools in Yorkshire and Humberside. It has the aim of demonstrating to school students the opportunities in life that speaking a foreign language opens up as well as showing how they will be able to offer an added bonus to their future employers if they maintain their language skills. The conference programme includes a high-profile keynote speaker with wide experience of using languages in their career, while the rest of the day comprises a range of interactive workshops. It is advertised to local schools, including those with a high Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) score, and their feedback has always been overwhelmingly positive. So far the event has been funded by Routes into Languages and supported by York St John Business School, and has become a fixture of our Widening Participation (WP) activities.\ud \ud Keywords: languages, careers, schools, employability.
