Weald & Downland Careers Forum

9 October 2017

Following a successful careers forum in 2015, this October we will to host a day to bring together interested parties to discuss work and careers in areas relating to our museum collection: traditional trades, historic crafts, skills used in preserving our countryside and of course working in our historic built environment or heritage organisations more broadly. We would like to invite you to take part.
Our target audience is not exclusively secondary, college or higher education students. We will also welcome careers changers of any age, parents who are investigating information on behalf of their children, teachers and careers advisors. Indeed, at the last event many adults of all ages attended. People often come to us for advice or contacts on this topic; hence our decision to organise a day to respond to this interest. The day is deliberately programmed for the day after our Autumn Countryside Show, when many crafts people are demonstrating a wide variety of skills at the Museum.

There is no charge for organisations to attend the event; simply email confirmation of attendance to lucyhockley@wealddown.co.uk by 1 May. Later we will ask for the name of the person representing your organisation and a low resolution version of your logo. More information will be sent after booking.
