Our view


Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 October 2017 at Harvey Hadden Sports Village, Bilborough, Nottingham, NG8 4PB. 

Over 5,000 people attended last year's fair. The event gives young people aged 15-19 and their parents and carers, the chance to meet local employers, apprenticeship training providers, school sixth forms and higher and further education providers to explore opportunities in Nottinghamshire.

Event times
Wednesday and Thursday – open to the public 4.15pm - 8pm
Thursday – school students sessions 9.30am - 3.30pm

Raise awareness of the full range of progression routes, including traditional and non-traditional pathways that you offer by exhibiting at the event.


Showcase your sector and business, as well as your apprenticeship offer. This event will give you widespread exposure to a large talent pool to help you address any future recruitment needs. This can be the ideal opportunity to raise young people's awareness of what you have to offer. We encourage you to consider engaging young people with appropriate interactive activities.
