Posted 5 July 2002THE ORGANISERS of this year's National Sixth Form Conference are anticipating their best ever recruitment to the national careers fair.
This is all the more remarkable given that the careers choices for students are all in the land-based industries. If you had expected that there would be falling numbers for this year's event, then think again.
The two-day residential conference takes place on Monday, July 8, and Tuesday, July 9, 2002 and is hosted by Harper Adams University College. Entitled 'A New Generation for Regeneration' the two days of careers advice and taster classes is proving more popular than ever before.
Conference Organiser Richard Jopling is pleased but not greatly surprised by this development. He said: "Although there are concerns in the industry, the reality is that those students with higher level qualifications will have better opportunities both within the industry and elsewhere."
Richard goes on to add: "Nowadays, it is more important than ever before to aim high and to become well-qualified in a specialist field that reflects your interests. The excellent recruitment to this year's event shows that students have taken this message to heart."
This year's conference is now full, with more than 250 students signed up but Harper Adams will be holding the event again in July 2003 and early booking is recommended if you want to secure a place.
