This event is an amazing and inspirational day at SSE Wembley Arena. The aim of the day is to encourage young people to ‘think big’ about their futures.
The morning session is an interactive futures (careers) fair. Students will have the opportunity to engage directly with employers across a variety of sectors. They can take part in workshops and/or activities run by representatives from highly regarded companies. The morning will open the students’ eyes to a range of apprenticeship programmes, school leaver opportunities, and higher education opportunities available to them. Previous exhibitors include NHS, Dyson, Dell, Barclays, Wates, MediaCom, RAF, Sky, Penguin, Rolls Royce and Siemens.
Students will then take their seats inside the arena to enjoy a fantastic pop concert in the afternoon. Past performers include Professor Green, Mabel, RazorLight and the Vamps.
Students can also enter a competition called ‘Class Act’. The winning artist (or group) will be offered the chance to perform on the main stage in Wembley Arena in front of 10,000 of their peers. Runners up will have the opportunity to showcase their talent on the Futures Fair fringe stage in the morning.
