National Career Guidance Show – 25/02/11
The National Career Guidance Show North took place on Thursday 17th February; this one day event was held for the first time at Saviles, Leeds, and attracted over 700 visitors.
The purpose was to give career guidance professionals, working with young people and adults, the opportunity to network, learn and meet like-minded colleagues, gaining valuable insights in the process.
The event was a roaring success, with over 60 exhibitors and a series of expert seminars throughout the day. More than 250 delegates attended Michael Larbalestier’s lecture on “Getting more from Google”.
