Description

#OppsAhead2018

Form the Future will be holding our 3rd multi-school careers fair in Cambridge this July. This event is open to all schools and designed for students in Years 9-13 who are looking for inspiration and information about their future careers. We hope you will want to exhibit and meet your future workforce!

We have moved the date back to the summer on the advice of schools. Many schools are showing strong interest in this event and we expect it to draw a large crowd. Are you from a school? Please register your students' attendance here.

The purpose of the fair is to showcase the wide variety of careers in the Cambridge area so that young people are:

  • Inspired
  • Informed and knowledgeable
  • Know what skills and qualifications they need to get into a particular field, informing their course choices.

For employers it’s an opportunity to:

  • Attract students into your sector
  • Raise your profile
  • Meet prospective employees.

We have a big focus on apprenticeships so should you offer apprenticeships we would highlight this, but it’s not a requirement for exhibiting.

The event is open to secondary schools & sixth-forms throughout the day with the chance for students to attend parents or carers in the late afternoon.

We encourage employers to bring something ‘hands-on’ that gives a real taste of the work you do. If you’re recruiting, bring specifics of the jobs on offer.

Please register now to secure your place. This year for the first time we are asking for an £80 (+VAT and fee) contribution from all exhibitors, to contribute to student transport costs. Should you prefer to be invoiced for the charge, please contact us directly and do not book through Eventbrite. There are also sponsorship opportunities for those who can make a larger contribution. Please contact us to find out more.

We have also launched a crowdfunding campaign to help us raise the funds needed for 2,500 students to attend from schools across Cambridge. Find out more here: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/set-2500-on-path-to-career-success/.

We are very grateful to our sponsor the Quy Mill Hotel & Spa, Cambridge who are very generously providing the venue free of charge.


FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is free parking on the hotel grounds.

What can I bring into the event?

All exhibitors have space for a pop up stand, use of a table and chairs. Please bring a tablecloth and an activity that will engage students' interest. We are happy to advise. Sample job descriptions are useful too! Sponsors may be able to bring larger displays or sponsor one of the workshop rooms.

How do I invite students to attend?

All students from Year 9 and above are welcome to attend. They can visit with their school, on their own or with a parent or carer. We ask that they register their attendance here. Please feel free to share the Eventbrite url with any young people, parents, schools or community groups that you may know!
