Following the success of our first Joint-Cadet Careers Fair earlier this year, we are now planning for next year’s event which we hope will be bigger and better.
The aim of the event is to bring members of the Sea Cadets, Army Cadet Force and Air Training Corps, aged 15½ -18, from across all of Yorkshire, the Humber and North East Lincolnshire, their adult instructors (CFAVs) and parents together with employers who recognise the benefits and work-ready life skills that cadets obtain, to discuss work experience, career opportunities and apprenticeship placements.
Given employer feedback and additional venue space, the 2024 Fair will also feature break-out space for an interactive programme of workshops focused on CV writing, interview skills, sector career opportunities, etc., and a practical space where employers can more actively engage with cadets.
If your organisation would be interested in participating, please contact Pauline King: email@example.com /M. 07947 330791 as soon as possible to discuss in more detail.
If you are unfamiliar with the Cadet Forces the event will also be an opportunity to learn about the training methods, ethos and environment that allows all young people, irrespective of demographics and academic achievement, to develop value adding life’s skills of relevance to employers.
