Family attendance

If you are coming as a family or as an individual we recommend you take a look at the exhibitor list and find out more about what the different companies and organisations can offer. It can be a good idea to practice an introduction or a few questions you might want to ask a future employer or recruiter.

Evening opening

Parents, carers, families and teachers want to have fun too, so there is a dedicated evening opening giving you a chance to find out more about the opportunities available to young people. You can try out the hands on demonstrations and interactive features whilst talking to experts.

A great range of exhibitors will be waiting to meet you and let you know all about the options they have available for young people, we recommend you take a look at the exhibitor list and find out more about what the different companies and organisations can offer. Meeting in this informal settling will help you help your child plan for their future. Open to all, the evening opening gives a wide audience a unique setting to ask plenty of questions and collect valuable resources and information. If you are unable to attend the evening opening you are welcome to visit at any time during the day time opening instead.
