You may select 4 students from your school within the age group to participate. We must have their names in advance and their age.

FREE “CAREER KEY” WORKSHOP - A free workshop for students who are confused or uncertain about the career path to choose.  The Career Key Test is based on the Holland RIASEC theory of career choice.  It helps students to know their personality type, to find the best career for them and leads them to a listing of over 400 careers categorised by personality types.  Register your students at the CHOICES booth on the day of the Expo.

SPECIAL TALK FOR COUNSELLORS/TEACHERS/PRINCIPALS – The day’s programme will include a special talk for counsellors and teachers.  More information on this soon as we are now finalising details.
