What is the careers fair?

 

Aimed at Years 7-13, the event will connect young people with local and national employers together with further and higher education providers across Devon, Somerset, Plymouth and Torbay, broadening horizons and raising aspirations through career-related learning.  

 

The 3-day event, taking place on the 27th, 28th and 29th April, will involve a virtual exhibition as well as 6 live sessions, including opportunities for Q&A and meaningful interactions with employers to support you with meeting Gatsby Benchmarks 5 and 7 primarily. 

Each day will focus on different keystages and as a minimum we recommend allocating a morning or an afternoon to the event, allowing 1-2 hours for your students to explore the fair and 1 hour to take part in a live session.
