The Institute of Physics and Belfast Metropolitan College are hosting its inaugural Technical Careers Fair on 6 October. This FREE fair is open to GCSE and A-Level students who are interested in physics, but are unclear of the career options available to them if they want to pursue an alternative route.
It is our aim to provide a transparent view of the options available to GCSE and A-Level students to help navigate the labyrinth of career pathways through technical routes, highlighting scientific apprenticeships.
We have selected a range of speakers to provide an insight into becoming an apprentice and the opportunities that it presents. The speakers include: an apprentice, a training provider, an employer and a Fellow of the IOP (Technician to Fellow).
Confirmed exhibitors: Aecom, Atkins, AWE, CERN, Emergency Fire, Royal Airforce, Royal Navy & Marine, STEMnet, Thales
Each school can register a maximum of 50 students.
The IOP will give £200 to the cost of transport for your school/college. Schools need to organise and pay for their own transport, and the IOP will reimburse you after the event. Please send a copy of your transport receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your bank details for payment of the £200 grant.
