Careers Festival is back!
That's right! From 4th-8th March 2024, we are inviting students aged 4-14 back as we host another Careers Festival!
Students will experience our immersive activities for up to 4 hours and will have the chance to meet with an incredible range of industry professionals. We have a broad selection of companies across a variety of sectors for your students to speak to, including those from British Airways, Met Police, and more!
Our next Careers Festival will take place from 4th - 8th March.
N.B. Visiting professionals available to speak to on each day will vary.
If your students visit 3 or more professions, they will receive an additional 5 kidZos (the KidZanian currency)! At the end of the festival students can decide how to spend their valued money, or simply save for their next visit.
