Oasis Academy Enfield Careers Fair: Can You Exhibit?
Do you have any contacts?
Oasis Academy Enfield has decided to run a ‘Careers Fair’ as an annual event. This year it will take place on 26th April 2018, in the main school hall, from 9am- 3pm.
The aim of the day is to introduce students to a wide range of career options and help them to make connections between learning and “working life”. We hope that by doing so, we will inspire them to value learning, open their minds to new possibilities and help them raise their own ambitions.
We are in the process of looking for exhibitors for this year’s convention. We are keen to have a wide range of careers and jobs; from Accountants to Zoologists and Bakers to Yoga instructors and everyone in between. Can you inspire young minds? We are looking for exhibitors from a diverse range of jobs and industries to come along and have a stand at the Oasis Academy Enfield Careers Fair 2018. Ideally the stands need to be “hands on” for the students, with visual props to touch (for example; uniform to try on, appropriate tools of the trade), information to look at and possibly short activities for them to do. If you are interested in coming along on the day and providing a stand or know someone who would be perfect, then please contact the Associate Assistant Principal Laura Fordham Laura.firstname.lastname@example.org. You will then be provided with additional information you may require and will be sent an Exhibitor Form to fill in.
We aim to help students to raise their ambitions and value their learning. The pupils will have a Careers Booklet to fill in based on the information they gather from exploring all the stands, so you also need to be prepared to answer a lot of questions!
Set up on the day
Each exhibitor will have a table, access to electricity and a small amount of space for banners or other equipment. There is Wifi. Free parking and lunch will be provided for exhibitors, as well as tea and coffee during the day, we are however, unable to pay anyone for their time.
There are 951 students and they will all have the opportunity to visit the ‘Oasis Academy Enfield Careers Fair’, in year groups (split in half), to the venue during the day, so during each session there will be roughly 85 pupils and their teachers. Exhibitors set up time will be from 8.30am to 9am. There will be 3 sessions in the morning and 2 in the afternoon with a break for lunch. The final session will finish at 2:50pm.
If any companies are able to provide sponsorship for this event, that would allow our limited funds to go further. If your firm is interested in supporting this event then please do get in touch.
