Gap fair

Futurewise School Leaver & Gap Fairs

Inspiring Futures run a series of gap, travel, volunteering and skills development fairs in partnership with host schools across the country. In the last academic year 2600 students attended a career and gap fair organised by us. 

A variety of companies attend our fairs and offer anything from skills courses such as learning to sail, apprenticeships/internship programmes, acquiring business skills or preparing for medical school, to volunteering and travel experiences such as marine conservation projects in Fiji, or teaching orphaned children in South America.
