  2. The event, Show Guide and lesson materials have been designed by career education consultants to support schools and colleges provide career guidance.
  3. Receive expert advice on the world of work, careers, further education and training, volunteering, work experience, self- employment and looking for work, and all under one roof.
  4. Talk directly to a range of employers to find out what they do and what they look for when recruiting.
  5. Speak to colleges, training providers and universities about their courses.

As a parent you are likely to be the single biggest influence on a child’s thoughts and feelings about their future career.
