Career Roadshow UK

Career Roadshow UK © Gèza Schenk

Our career days are aimed at young learners and provide an excellent environment to find out more about opportunities with German. There will be a varied programme of short presentations by experts from industry and educational institutions, workshops, stalls, and other activities to illustrate the relevance of German in a career context and how it can improve job opportunities at home or abroad. 

The events are aimed at school and university students. Both groups will be given different time slots on the day to ensure that there is a dedicated focus on their different interests and requirements.
