Students can get a real sense of all the different options they have after school with a mix of apprenticeships, university and college education opportunities on offer. School-leavers have the chance to talk directly to exhibitors and learn what it’s like to work or study with them and what the application process involves.

The careers advice lounge allows school-leavers to get advice one-to-one from an impartial careers advisor. Talks from professionals let students gain an insight into what it is like going to university, doing an apprenticeship, working in specific industries, application advice, and much more.

Interactive parts of the show like Buskers' Corner, Future Skills Workshops, and the Creative Hub encourage school-leavers to practice their skills and think about their future.
