Careers Fairs are a fantastic way to give students direct access to a plethora of information, from local further and higher education providers, to training providers that offer relevant courses and even employers who are looking to recruit locally.
These types of events are especially useful for students that have not yet quite settled on a chosen career discipline, for those who would like to know more about a variety of different sectors or perhaps just looking to broaden their knowledge of whats out there in the world of work. Careers Fairs allow students to compare and contrast a number of organisations directly, which is much more dynamic than just reading company web sites
Careers Education, Information Advice & Guidance (CEIAG)
What provision does your school make for CEIAG / IAG ? There is provision and support across all year groups and ages from employers, should you wish your students to experience these opportunities.
The progression pathways, local opportunities, aspirations and the often 'undecided' nature of being a teenager are all areas to be taken into account when building a unique programme of support for young people.
The journey to open employment varies hugely, not only by initial route but also end destinations, so much variety requires an equally varied approach to information advice and guidance.
Talk to the Education Business Paretnership about how our SMART choices programme can provide a holistic solution to the CEIAG / IAG.at your school.
