Covid 19 Update

In September schools will go back and if there is a second wave the Government have said schools will be the last to close.

Young People still need education, they still need to learn about the different jobs, they still need know what skills they need for jobs, they still need to develop employability skills and WE still need YOU!

We will continue to run these inspirational careers fairs as they remain an essential part of their education and young people need more support with their future than ever before.

While the virtual inspirational careers fairs will be different and we are aiming to keep the interactive elements using creative new methods, the key part that will remain the same is we will need still businesses' virtual input and support to make these events happen.

Help us to ensure young people can still connect to the world of work in the new norm by registering your organisations interests in supporting future virtual events/fairs by emailing us [email protected].

Please note there are currently no events showing, we have several large scale virtual events/inspirational careers fair in the pipeline. If you would like to keep updated in future events please do email us.
