The first ever Three Counties Careers Fair earlier this year was such a success it’s returning to the Three Counties Showground in Malvern on Thursday, 24th January 2019.

More than 750 young people are expected to attend the event which showcases what’s on offer at colleges and universities as well as giving access to employers from across Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

Mark Harwood-Browne, Education Executive for the Three Counties, who organises the event, said: “This is an outstanding opportunity for young people to come to one place and see the wide range of education and employment opportunities that are available to them within the three counties area. You do not need to travel away from where you live to be able to access world class educational opportunities and enjoy a fulfilling and productive career.”

The Three Counties Careers Fair brings together a wide range of exhibitors as diverse as the engineering firm Yanazaki Mazak UK Ltd, the ornamental plant grower Wyevale Nurseries and all sections of the British Armed Forces. Many of the corporate exhibitors will showcase their industry and promote their apprenticeship and trainee schemes.

Top universities including Hartpury, Worcester and Wolverhampton will demonstrate the breadth of higher education opportunities, while colleges such as the Heart of Worcestershire and Warwickshire College Group will show visitors the wide range of vocational and work based course options that are available to them.

An exciting addition to next year’s fair is The Curiosity Museum’s award-winning careers workshop. It brings a touring mini museum which gives students an innovative and inspiring introduction to the full range of jobs in the UK Careers Strategy.

Students who visit the Curiosity Museum can take part in a series of thought-provoking activities to equip them with the transferable skill-set and career insights they need to make well-informed decisions about their future.

Using creative thinking techniques, the workshops aim to motivate, energise and inspire students to reach their full potential.

Manda Graham, Director at Equal Vision, the company behind the Curiosity Museum said: “We’re really excited to be bringing the Curiosity Museum to the Three Counties Careers Fair. Seventy one per cent of students who have taken part in our unique programme have told us that they have gained a new insight into their future careers.”
