Careers Wales and Grŵp Llandrillo Menai are inviting employers and partners to a STEM careers fair - Codi STEM - on Tuesday, March 22, 2016.
The event is for pupils aged 13-14 from schools in Conwy and Denbighshire, and takes place at Coleg Llandrillo Rhos-on-Sea MBEC Centre.
Within the next four years, one in five people will be employed in a STEM career. And there's a number pretty big infrastructure projects happening in North Wales that will offer a range of STEM job opportunities.
So now is a great time for young people to plan ahead to ensure they have the relevant skills and training.
The careers fair will highlight the work opportunities linked to STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) that exist right here in North Wales, including those linked to Anglesey’s Energy Island development.
At the event, pupils and teachers will be able to meet employers, role models and STEM ambassadors, as well as take part in interactive workshops focusing on skills for the future.
The Codi STEM careers fair provides a great opportunity for employers within STEM sectors to network and share their experiences and expertise with learners and the region's future work force.
Organisers are expecting a good response to the fair (following last year’s success), so Careers Wales and Grwp Llandrillo Menai want to make sure as many key employers as possible are present during the day to help inspire and motivate pupils.
For more information and to confirm your attendance, please contact Aled Hughes on 01248 383345 (ext. 2242) or firstname.lastname@example.org by February 25, 2016.
A Meet the Employer and Apprenticeship Skills session will also take place on March 21, 2016from 3pm to 7pm.
This event will provide an opportunity for young people interested in becoming apprentices when they finish school or college to speak to employers, and find out about their apprenticeship schemes.
The evening will include an informal information session with college staff and employers, a CV and work-skills workshop with Careers Wales, and an opportunity to meet and talk to current apprentices.
If you currently employ or are looking to recruit apprentices, and would like to be involved, please let Aled Hughes know when you book your stand space at CodiSTEM.
