Careers Fair 2019

A huge EGA 'Thank You' to all exhibitors!!!

On Friday 18th January 2019, EGA hosted its annual careers fair for years 10 and 11 students. 

The event had exhibitors from various organisations from the Metropolitan Police to The Royal Air Force; including our corporate partners Goldman Sachs, Salesforce and Kings College London.

This years fair had a particular focus on apprenticeships. Three quarters of our exhibitors offered apprenticeships and many brought apprentices with them who were able to share their insights and experiences with our students.

It was a great show of opportunities available to our young people.
