The event is organised for Year 11 students and their parents/carers and will complement any careers conventions held in schools. You will be able to speak to staff from schools, colleges and training providers, as well as higher education institutions and a number of large employers. C&K Careers staff will be on hand to offer advice and to discuss future options such as full-time education, traineeships and apprenticeships.
A series of short presentations about post-16 options and more will be repeated throughout the events.
The events are for all young people - those who know what they want to do after Year 11 and those who are undecided. You’re welcome to drop in anytime from 4pm.
