Introducing the London NCOP Careers Fair 2018


Monday 19 November 2018  |  The Queen Elizabeth II Centre, London

 

Think back to when you were between 14-19 years old. Did you know what sort of career you wanted? Had you identified which employment sector was for you? Did you have some sort of event that enabled you to find out more about the current and future career opportunities and sectors you could work in?

Fortunately for the young people involved in the London National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP), they can look forward to a Careers Fair that will provide them with vital contacts to help inform their future careers. Perhaps you or someone you know could be one of those contacts?

The London NCOP team is excited to announce our upcoming London NCOP Careers Fair, taking place on Monday 19 November at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre. The London NCOP Careers Fair aims to help 14-19 year old students from across London understand the different progression options available to them after leaving school. We now have a full complement of higher education institutions and would like to appeal to organisations who have an interest in recruiting graduates now and in the future.

A limited number of exhibitors will have the FREE opportunity to profile their organisations by presenting to c.400-500 students from schools and colleges across nine London boroughs (Bexley, Barking & Dagenham, Bromley, Croydon, Greenwich, Havering, Hounslow, Merton and Sutton). The fair will host a series of workshops and talks for students to attend, as well as exhibition space for employers and universities alongside a careers advice zone. The fair will therefore provide students with information regarding accessing different career options available to them. Students will learn how to access these career options and how to take the necessary steps to achieve their goals.

Exhibiting is free of charge for organisations but on a first come, first served basis.

The London NCOP Careers Fair is a collaborative initiative involving a consortium of partners including AccessHE, Aimhigher London, and Linking London. Each of these organisations have been working hard to ensure an enjoyable, memorable and educational careers fair can take place.

Funded by the Office for Students, NCOP is a national project which aims to increase the number of young people from lower participation neighbourhoods into higher education by 2020. The programme hopes to increase awareness and opportunities available in higher education and support learners to make informed decisions about their futures. We are excited that this Careers Fair will contribute as part of the outreach programmes being delivered to support the work of the London NCOP.
