Q. When will the virtual event take place?
The virtual event will take place on a virtual event platform called Hopin from 12-6pm on Wednesday 20th October and 12-6:20pm on 21st October. By registering, you’ll receive an email with a link before the event, which you can access via a laptop, computer, tablet or phone. We do recommend using chrome on a laptop or computer for the best experience.
Q. How will the virtual event work?
The event will include live presentations on the main stage from selected employers across the two days. There is also an expo area for you and your students to visit employer booths, where employers will be on hand to answer any specific questions about their opportunities.
Q. I’m a teacher / careers advisor / leader - How can I facilitate this in the classroom?
As there is an opportunity for you and your students to speak directly with employers, it would be advantageous for everyone to register individually and to log in on the day through their own devices (computers / laptops are preferred for the best experience but tablets / mobiles will work too). The best browser to access the virtual event is Chrome. By registering individually, students will also have the option to allow employers to contact them via email about their opportunities after the event. If it isn’t possible for you and your students to log in individually on the day, you can always watch the main stage presentations from a tv in the classroom. We know timetables are all different across the UK so there is time after school / college for students and parents to access the event from home too.
Q. What happens if we can’t join the event when it’s live?
You and your students have the flexibility to drop in and out of presentations during the live event. Joining live is a more interactive experience as there is an opportunity to speak to employers directly. However, presentations on the main stage will be recorded and shared post-event.
