An invitation to parents, past and present,  and Ex-students to be an exhibitor at our Careers Expo

The aim of the evening is to enable students to talk with professionals who can provide valuable information about their occupation and the training that is required to do that occupation. It is an informal evening where no presentation will be required; you will be sitting at a table and students with their parents will simply approach you for discussion.
