WHAT IS THE SCHOOL LEAVER CONFERENCE?

The School Leaver Conference is a two-day event bringing together students, parents, schools, employers and empirical evidence, in order to foster understanding, build relationships and provide a sustainable way for employers and schools to interact.

Day 1 - Friday 29th September - for Employers & Careers Advisers Day 1 is essential for anyone involved in school leaver recruitment or careers guidance. We will share best practice and practical ideas that you can take back to your school or company to improve how you work with schools and employers. 

All of our presentations, talks and workshops are backed up with empirical evidence. Anecdotal case studies are great to help us understand things about the school leaver market, but by utilising Big Data we can see larger patterns and understand best practice that can be used at scale.  

Day 2 – Saturday 30th September - for Students & Parents Day 2 is an opportunity for parents and young people to learn more about the apprenticeships and school leaver opportunities offered by employers from the most reputable companies in the UK.
