Taking a gap year helps students develop important life skills for the work place. Inspiring Futures run a series of gap, travel, volunteering and skills development fairs in partnership with host schools across the country.
Futurewise Gap Fairs give students the opportunity to receive valuable advice and guidance from experienced and well renowned exhibitors such as the Year Out group.
Students will have an opportunity to explore the range of gap year opportunities on offer by talking directly with a variety of companies who offer anything from skills courses, such as learning to sail or preparing for medical school, to volunteering and travel experiences such as marine conservation projects in Fiji.
A calendar of gap fairs can be found on the Futurewise website.
