Ripon Grammar School’s popular Careers Fair is set to go ahead this year in a virtual format, giving students a taste of the wide range of opportunities available on leaving school from the comfort of their own homes.

The pandemic hasn’t stopped exhibitors from the world of work and education queuing up to give students a taste of what’s on offer, with representatives from companies such as Hemingway Marketing Services and ventilation manufacturer EnviroVent taking part, as well as world-class universities.

This year the Careers Fair, which is also open to parents, will be held virtually tomorrow (Wednesday 3rd March) from 6pm to 8pm – an exciting and innovative live event which can be enjoyed at home.

Ripon Grammar School Work Experience and Events Coordinator Mr Walker said he hoped lots of students and parents would benefit from the event:

“Because we’re using a digital platform, we’re able to attract so many more organisations from a wide geographical area.

“It’s been an immense challenge to organise but I am determined to give RGS students the very best opportunities when deciding on their career paths.”

Anyone who wishes to attend the event should register beforehand to access virtual career booths, where they will be able to talk live to representatives via the web-based platform. (Click here to register)

There’s no need to download an app to access the NOVVA virtual fair platform which we’re using, and parents can register as an add-on to their child’s registration or separately. You can view an example of how it will work here.
