The target group are school pupils from the age of 13 and undergraduate university students. You may wish to prioritize year groups which are selecting GCSE or A-Level.

The programme and further information on travel and logistics will be made available to you approx. 1-2 weeks before the respective roadshow.

The individual workshops are color-coded to make it clear which age group and level a workshop is aimed at.

It is not necessary to book the workshops in advance. If you/your students would like to participate in a particular workshop, please make sure you arrive at the designated room on time. The number of participants per workshop is limited. If your desired workshop is already full, please attend another workshop. We will make sure there is enough space for each participant, either at the fair or in one of the workshops.

To ensure that the roadshow is a (learning) success for your students, the following topics could be discussed before visiting a roadshow:
  • Objectives: What do the students want to learn? Are there topics on the programme that they are particularly interested in?
  • Fair: What questions could the students ask when visiting a company's/organisaion's fair stand?
  • Notebook: Students will receive a notebook at the fair with activities that can be completed before, during, or after the roadshow. You can download the the notebook here:
  • Teaching materials: Below, we have put together a list of teaching materials on study and careers which are available free of charge.

Here you will find an overview of the programmes from past roadshows. Please note that each roadshow is different and there is the possibility that certain elements of the programme are not included at the Roadshow you will be visiting.
