Ipswich School is hosting a Careers Convention on 16 March 2017. Come along and see a wealth of over 45 local and national exhibitors representing an array of graduate and post-A Level careers.

The 2017 Ipswich School Careers Convention (7-9 pm, 16th March) will be a fantastic opportunity for students to gain much advice and information in order to make informed choices about their future. We will be joined by over 45 regional and national companies, offering advice and information concerning opportunities, entry requirements and job specifications for their own professions.  This forum enables students to meet and ask questions of those people who have had experience in a number of diverse jobs. This is a great opportunity for students to discover what various careers involve and to form a spring board to do further research into careers that spark their imagination.
