What is the conference about?
The School Leaver Conference brings together employers and schools in order to better understand the early careers market. You can learn directly from schools the best ways to interact with them, find out how to effectively promote programmes to school leavers and their influencers, and get a first look at the latest research from AllAboutSchoolLeavers.co.uk.
In its second year, it is building on the success of last year with even more speakers, covering a range of topics. Please watch the video below to get an understanding of what to expect.
