Gap fair

Inspiring Futures run a series of gap, travel, volunteering and skills development fairs in partnership with host schools across the country. In the academic year of 2014-2015, 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, 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.
