Virtual Careers Fair for Year 11 students
The Marches Careers Hub are really excited to be hosting a virtual careers fair on Thursday 8th July between 10am and 3pm for students across the Marches.
We hope that this will support you to enhance your provision of meaningful employer encounters this academic year. We will be providing the opportunity for students to engage with local employers across Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin. It will also enable them to receive valuable information from colleges, training providers and universities.
