Do you want to run a careers fair in your school? This set of resources has everything you may need. Resources include:

 

  • Sample letters that can be sent to invite potential guests, including prompts to help them prepare their story in advance.
  • A detailed workbook for students that includes pre-event preparation that can be done with mentors or in tutor/guidance time. This workbook also helps them to make the best of their conversations as well as helping them to reflect on their findings after the event.
  • ASK ME ABOUT sheets for teachers, staff and guests to help prompt student engagement during the fair.
  • An outline of task list and scaffolding which allows students to take ownership of the design, planning and organisation this careers fair.
