Careers fair launched for students in Stamford, Bourne, the Deepings and Rutland
A careers fair aimed at teenagers will be launched on Wednesday next week (July 14).
The free event from 10am to 2pm is designed to bring employers and students together online at www.greaterlincscareersfair.co.uk.
Schools and colleges have been invited to attend and inside the virtual exhibition hall, young people can interact with organisations and employers through instant messages, find out about jobs, and access information on apprenticeships and courses.
The NHS, Lincolnshire County Council, the University of Lincoln, and various local colleges and training providers will attend.
Joanne Woodhouse, an assistant principal who is hosting the event, said: “Good careers information is imperative to help young people make informed decisions about their next step, whatever that may be, and engaging with the providers on the day of the event will help them do just that.”
The event is being run by the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership and is open to pupils, parents and teachers.
Employers, training and education providers and support services from Lincolnshire and Rutland can register for an exhibition stand free of charge at www.greaterlincscareersfair.co.uk/register.
Anyone with a question about being an exhibitor, or wishing to submit a video about careers in a certain sector can email Natalie.Poole@lincolnshire.gov.uk
