Amanda Knee, a parent and previous visitor comments:
“This event was excellent for me as a parent who didn’t know what the next steps were for my 17 year old. There were so many different options to explore and investigate. Each one was well explained and very helpful to both myself and my son. I would recommend to every parent and child who doesn’t know what career path they wish to follow.”
Entry is free for students, parents and school groups and tickets can be booked at www.whatcareerlive.co.uk
