This year IKIC will be holding our annual Ambition Barnsley careers event at the Metrodome Leisure Complex on Wednesday 20th November 2019.
It will be a chance to see what wonderful opportunities there are within the Barnsley area and beyond to inspire young people and help them make their post 16 choices.
There will be a wide range of stall holders for young people to meet including Colleges, Universities, Post 16 Providers and Local and National Employers.
We know good careers guidance can raise young people’s aspirations and promote access to all career pathways. The event also supports the delivery of the Gatsby benchmarks for careers guidance by enabling young people to have great encounters with further and higher education and learn from good quality career and labour market information. And, as there are opportunities available for everyone, it addresses everyone’s needs and aspirations.
Booking forms have now been distributed to our exhibitor mailing list. Anyone who is interested in having an interactive stall who has not yet received a booking form can contact the Ambition Barnsley email on firstname.lastname@example.org to request one.
Schools will be invited in early September for the daytime sessions and we will also write out to all parents/carers of Y9/10 and 11 young people closer to the event.
