Virtual Careers Fair
Virtual Careers Fair 2020 - Innovative, Inspiring and Informative
Please click here to access the Virtual Careers Fair from Wednesday, 25 November 2020.
We are pleased to announce that the annual Ivybridge Community College Careers Fair will be hosted ‘virtually’ throughout the day on Wednesday, 25 November 2020.
This year, due to the virtual nature of the event, we have expanded the invitation to our students in all year groups to help inspire and inform them prior to making their next step choices, whatever stage they are at on their learning pathway. Events such as this encourage our students to get involved in the careers and next steps process and explore fully the opportunities which are on offer.
The virtual exhibition will bring together over forty organisations and training providers from Plymouth and the South West; this will include local universities and apprenticeship providers through to small businesses and organisations with global interests. From careers in IT and dentistry, manufacturing and engineering, the building environment, to landscape architecture, healthcare, music, IT, the Police and the Forces - the range is truly comprehensive.
Each organisation will be provided with a virtual exhibition space within the College website, where they can contribute a set of links to virtual tours, YouTube videos, pre-recorded talks and presentations, in order to share company and course information with students and their parents/carers.
The format of the Virtual Careers Fair will be as various drop-down headed career sections with links to the provider’s websites, videos etc. This information will stay on the website following the Careers Day, so will be accessible for you to look through the options after the event too, at a later date or time that is convenient to you.
The contributors have kindly offered their links to be made available on the College website throughout the academic year, which will provide our students with an extremely useful point of reference as they consider their next steps in the months ahead.
"This year, more than ever, it is crucial that we support, encourage and reassure young people on their future learning and career choices. Ivybridge Community College’s virtual career fair provides the perfect platform for students to engage with local employers and form a lasting connection. We look forward to meeting you online!"

“Ivybridge Community College is one of our Building Plymouth Adopted Schools, so we are particularly thrilled to be remotely supporting their Virtual Careers Fair. It’s great to be improving the image of construction and attracting young people to consider construction and the built environment as a career of choice while physical events are on pause!”
