Opportunities and benefits
The What University? & What Career? Live events are aimed at 15-19 year old school leavers, teachers, careers advisors and their parents investigating post-school options including apprenticeships, part/full-time work, internships, school leaver programmes, gap year opportunities and undergraduate courses - all under one roof.
The events are hosted at the NEC Birmingham, Olympia London and virtually, ensuring that school groups from across the UK can access essential information about the wide range of opportunities for school leavers. Our in-house Schools Liaison team has built relationships with teachers and careers advisors around the country and regularly engage with them to -re-register register school groups to attend the events.
Our research has indicated that parents are becoming increasingly involved in career decisions. Their views have a big impact on career choices. Holding the event on both a Friday and Saturday allows parents to attend and gather information from the parent zones and parent advice seminars.
