In total, 200 students and their families attended the event and the organisers were extremely impressed with the range of questions from our students and their inquisitive nature in wanting to find out more.

Some of the individual comments we received from providers included:
“A brilliant event! The students and parents were so engaged and the fayre was very well-organised.”

“Excellent attendance, enthusiastic pupils with lots of relevant questions.”

We would like to thank all who made this event so successful and look forward to making next year’s careers event even more successful.
