Livery Schools Link at the London Careers Festival

Monday July 3 was for Primary pupils aged 10 and 11 and Tuesday July 4 was for Secondary pupils aged 13 and 14. We had twenty-four stalls from Livery Companies on the Primary day and thirty-six stalls on the Secondary day. Response from the schools was good and there was a lively atmosphere on both days. Students asked lots of questions and tried a number of activities.
