The Fair once again focused on employability skills, with exhibitors presenting their business to small groups of students through practical, interactive workshops that demonstrated the skills and attributes needed in order to work in their industry sectors. There were a wide range of activities on offer, covering a number of different sectors and represented by a long list of employers including but not limited to; Berkeley Group, Metropolitan Police Southwark, Everyone Active, Ofcom, TfL, The Army and more.

Students were able to experience a wide range of careers available in sectors including:

  • Apprenticeships
  • Construction and Engineering
  • Creative and Media
  • Hospitality & Catering
  • Public sector, charities and social enterprise
  • Retail and leisure
  • Finance and law

The event was a great success with hundreds of students, multiple schools and long list of employers present over the two days. The feedback from students, employers and teachers was very positive:

'I learnt about a lot of careers and career paths that I would have overlooked previously' Year 10 student

'The people were really welcoming and explained their careers really well' Year 10 student

A full evaluation of all the feedback received over the two days will be made available on the site soon, so be sure to check back for more details.

Access to the Careers Fair was part of the subscription to our paid-for work experience packages.
