Gareth Thomas MP calls for Harrow residents to support School Careers Fair

Gareth Thomas MP is calling for people from all businesses and occupations to come forward and help Harrow’s bright lights consider their career choices.

Last year, Gareth’s Careers Fair in collaboration with Rooks Heath College was the only event in Harrow’s calendar to bring together pupils from local state schools and over 20 companies and institutions, from the British Film Institute and Heathrow, to the NHS and the Met Police, to a CV and cover letter workshop from Google.

This year, due to the COVID pandemic, instead of the large gathering in a school hall, Gareth is hoping to organise a virtual Fair. Students from across Harrow will be able to tune in and have discussions with a wide selection of workers discussing their career paths.

Gareth wants you to get involved and share exactly what brought you to your career path.

The MP for Harrow West says, “You can join from the comfort of your own living room – all we want is someone that is willing to talk with Harrow’s brightest lights about the career path they have taken.

If you can offer any support yourself or can provide more contacts –please send me an e-mail with the subject Careers Fair to gareth.thomas.mp@parliament.uk”

Hundreds of pupils from schools and colleges were in attendance last year, playing host to representatives from over 25 businesses and companies from across the country.
