STEM Learning is excited to invite teachers and young people to attend our virtual careers fair over 4 – 8 July 2022.
Aimed at 14–19 year-olds, Life After School: Get ready! will allow young people from across the UK to find out more about how different sector organisations can support them after they leave school or college. It will serve to inspire and inform; supporting students to build their Careers Capital so they can make informed decisions about their futures.
Our large, interactive, virtual careers fair will include content which answers the following questions:
  • What opportunities are open to young people after they leave school or college – could it be university? An apprenticeship? Employment? Graduate training?
  • What skills, such as employability skills, will young people need to develop and how can they demonstrate these within applications, CVs, interviews, professional environments etc?
  • What support can young people draw on to ensure they are making an informed decision about their future?
Set in our online exhibition hall, up to 25 exhibitors from across the UK will have the opportunity to use pre-recorded videos, ‘pull-up’ banners, quizzes, presentations and static documents to show how they can help answer these questions, highlighting available opportunities where relevant. 
Visitors will also have the chance to interact directly with our exhibitors via a safeguarded, text-based live chat function open daily between 10-11am and 2-3pm.
