Although the below information refers to last year’s Virtual Careers Fair, the links are still useful for our students so we have decided to keep the information live. Please see our Careers page for information on the 2022 Whole School Careers Fair. 

In 2021 we had our first ever Bradon Forest Virtual Careers Fair. Usually students would have been able to meet with a variety of employers and further education specialists at our Careers Fair to find out more about roles in different employment sectors and what courses would be available to them after leaving Bradon Forest. We did not want to let COVID prevent students from having this experience so we collated a number of videos and links to external websites here for you.

Click on the video clips and links (in blue text) to find out more about each role.
