Get the edge at careers fair
Published 3 October 2012
High school students will have the opportunity to explore career and study options at Walpole Park and Pitzhanger Manor’s Careers Fair next Tuesday 9 October at Ealing Town Hall.
The free event will offer information about careers linked to the park, manor house and gallery, including conservation and environment, archeology and history, architecture, creative arts and design, construction, education and outreach work, marketing and event planning, and many more. Professionals working in these areas will be on hand to answer questions and offer advice about getting into the business.
Information about work experience, training, volunteering, and apprenticeship opportunities will be available, while specialised talks and workshops will also run throughout the day.
Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council, said: In these tough economic times, its important students equip themselves with knowledge and direction to have the edge on other job seekers.
I think guests will be surprised by how many different types of jobs are connected with the parks, cultural and heritage sectors and I hope the day will encourage young people to look into careers they may not have thought about.
The day is aimed at year 10 and 11 students, but everyone is welcome to attend. Bookings are recommended, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The careers fair is funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) as part of their Parks for People grant, which was awarded to Ealing Council in July 2011 to improve Walpole Park and its heritage features.
