  • Turn your creativity into a career

This will be our fifth careers fair of it’s kind and our feedback consistently highlights that just shy of 100% of students who attend and engage benefit from the event. If you’re a Year 10, 11, 12 or 13 student make sure you’re there – and that you participate for the duration of the event.

If you are a student at a nearby Hackney, Haringey or Islington school and would like to attend, please email and we will let you know what you need to bring to be admitted to the event.
