About the Careers Fair

The 2019 Careers Fair is an ideal event for anyone thinking of future career options. Drop in any time between 5pm and 7pm to visit stalls and speak to representatives from a wide range of sectors.

You will get an insight into different roles and the qualifications you need to enter that field, and will be particularly useful if you are coming up to choose your GCSE, A Level or higher education options.

The Careers Fair is open to parents and young people, whatever school you currently attend, and will be of particular interest to those in Year 9 and above.

Tea and coffee will be available all evening.
