Get Ahead in the Labour Market By Going Abroad
The Stand Out in a Global Market event series inspires students to kick start their careers by gaining experience abroad. Free one-day events are held around the country and are open to sixth formers. The events demonstrate the range of opportunities available, from vocational courses to international exchanges.
Attendees are able to get advice on what it’s really like from students who have already been abroad. At the same time they hear from employers on what they look for in graduates to compete globally. Gap year companies, universities and volunteer organisations are also on hand to guide students towards the opportunity which may be right for them.
There were lots of people to talk to who were very friendly and could give you lots of information

Hearing about the different experiences was great, it's given me determination to grasp the opportunities that are provided!

Stand Out in a Global Market 2017 - Don't Let Fears About Brexit Limit Your Students' Future:
We are back for 2017 and this year we are organising the events in collaboration with our colleagues from Eurodesk! The free one-day events are open to all young people aged 16-18 and are being held in Birmingham, Bradford and Hull:
31st October – the Studio, Birmingham
9th November – the Opportunity Centre, City House, Bradford
15th November – KCOM Stadium, Hull
The agendas for the day will look to reassure students that, despite recent political events, there are still lots of different international opportunities available to them. Indeed studying and working abroad remains a cost effective, fun way for young people to gain important employability skills which will help them get ahead in an increasingly competitive labour market.
