A great two day event, allowing employers to meet lots of potential employees. Great atmosphere.” Virgin Media

“A brilliant opportunity to provide impartial advice & guidance to young people into future pathways, employment with training, further & higher education and apprenticeships & higher apprenticeships.” Cornwall College

“Our stand was there to inspire and inform young people about exciting opportunities in the technology sector in Wales. Technology underpins every part of our lives and to be digitally literate is as fundamental as Maths and English. Our sector stand was a chance for many of the technology companies in Wales to come together under one roof and provide young people with the diversity of careers and technologies available, and the range of companies from multi-national through to the new start-ups.” ESTnet

“As a training provider these types of event are crucial for us to attract the attention of both students and their teachers, giving them an insight into the opportunities that are available for them when they leave school.” NAC Group

“Being at the event means the BBC can promote a variety of careers to a host of schools in one place, and show that we are accessible to all. Our teams have had valuable conversations with young people and have been really encouraged by how prepared visitors have been in finding out about careers in the creative industries. One 17 year old came prepared with his CV, passionate about a career in sound. We have also been able to inform teachers and pupils about the different entry routes available into the industry, including apprenticeships/traineeships.” BBC

“It has been great to generate interest among young people. The region is fast becoming a centre of excellence for the financial services sector and needs applicants at all levels, with a variety of qualifications.” GM Financial

“Acorn has enjoyed being part of a large skills event that has attracted high quality young people, relevant to our needs. The attendance has exceeded our expectations and our photo booth activity has attracted them to our stand, so we can then engage with them about what Acorn has to offer.” Acorn

“Excellent event with much interest from students and gatekeepers. The Army recorded over 1,000 interactions during the evening opening and one day event and were delighted to meet with at least 6 schools who we have been unable to access to promote the range of careers the Army has to offer.” Army Careers
