The conference aims to bring careers leaders, head teachers, governors and businesses to share best practice on careers engagement, network and learn from others.

We are delighted to announce that our headline guest speaker will be Ian Smith, Lead Inspector for OFSTED, who will be talking about the importance of the careers strategy and the impact this will have on education and the world of work.
