Careers Speed Networking Event 2017
Mon 27 March 2017, 08:00 – 13:00 BST
Q3 Academies Trust in partnership with Black Country Chamber of Commerce are organising a careers speed networking event to raise aspirations and employability skills by showcasing as many occupations as possible to Year 9 students. As valued local employers, we would like you to be a part of this event with the primary goal of raising awareness of the skills, qualifications and potential routes into different careers.
Based on a "Speed Networking" concept, we are seeking employers who are passionate about their business to donate half a day of their time to talk to young people about working in their industry. Each business volunteer will have their own station. Students will take turns to carousel around in small groups to find out more about different career paths and ask questions to gain an insight into the world of work.
All business volunteers will receive a VIP invite for lunch.
