Dev Clever (AIM:DEV) FOLLOW is launching a “Virtual Open Week”, a first-of-its-kind virtual regional careers event for educational establishments and students across the West Midlands. 
 
The event has been designed to give Year 10 and 11 students from over 300 schools across the West Midlands access to the group’s careers platform, launchyourcareer.com. 
 
The educational careers platform will be showcased at the event for the first time and will allow students to ‘enhance their prospects’ by connecting them with the 21 colleges across the region. 
 
The group said that every school and college, as well as careers advisers and enterprise co-ordinators, in the West Midlands has been invited to participate in the Virtual Open Week. 
 
Participating schools will register on Launchyourcareer.com where pupils will go through a process to identify the careers and subject areas that interest them the most, the group said. 
 
Shares in Dev Clever were trading 3.66% higher at 6.79p on Wednesday morning. 

Students will then have access to a series of live sessions ‘virtually’ designed by colleges, with students matched to the most appropriate sessions via their selection choice on the platform. 
 
"This is an exciting pilot and an excellent opportunity that shows the versatility of our careers development platform,” said Chris Jeffries, CEO Dev Clever.  

Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, said “it's critical that we support young people through this period and beyond,” adding that their contribution was vital to rebuilding the region’s economy in the longer-term after the Covid-19 crisis.  
 
“In these challenging times this project will not only support our young people to make important decisions,” said Carolyn Chapman-Lees, CEO of Titan Partnership, an educational network supporting the event. 
 
Following the event, Dev said it will assess wider commercial opportunities in other regions and global territories where its platforms are used, as well as a potential ‘National Virtual Open Week.’
