Tomorrow's What Next Careers and Opportunities Fair is expected to be the largest careers fair in Nottingham with record numbers attending.

The fair, organised by Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Futures is to be held on Tuesday and Wednesday (9 and 10 October) at Harvey Hadden Stadium in Bilborough.

More than 6,000 people are expected to attend with more than 90 exhibitors holding stalls there including the army, the F1 driving school and a number of councils and universities.

Futures say the fair aims to provide opportunities for Year 11 students, colleges, universities and those seeking apprenticeships.

The event is an exclusive opportunity for employers, training and higher and further education providers to reach thousands of 15-19 year olds and for young people to gain information and advice to help them with their future careers.
