Summer careers fair

With A-level and GCSE results day fast approaching, the Council is hosting a careers fair aimed at 16-20 year olds on Thursday 30 August.

The Council’s careers fair will be dedicated to helping pupils, who may not have received the results they were expecting, to develop a practical plan about what they want to do moving forward.

There will be stalls from more than 20 training providers who will be on hand to talk about opportunities in fashion, construction, art, hospitality, horticulture and media.

The fair will be held at Hackney Town Hall between 12pm-4pm.

For more information contact: or on 020 8356 5700.
