Students and staff from across Dartmoor Multi-Academy Trust (DMAT) are reflecting on a greatly successful careers fair.

The event, which took place over March 8 and 9, saw more than 2,500 students visit the Ashbury Hotel in Okehampton to meet employers and educational institutions across from across the region.

Alongside a series of specialist talks, the main exhibition space welcomed more than 70 businesses and institutions – including consultancies, engineering firms, universities, colleges, the army, supermarkets, and more – to share information on the careers which are available to school leavers.

The Trust received positive feedback from all involved, with students inspired by the wide range of careers and educational options available to them.

After the success of last week’s event, the Trust have already begun work organising a follow-up Careers Fair, taking place on the December 6 and 7, 2023.

Derrick Brett, Executive Director of Civic Leadership for Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust, said: “This was a brilliant event for the whole community, and I would like to thank every organisation involved for their time and generosity.

“It was incredibly encouraging to see our students’ enthusiasm for the wide range of careers options which were on display, and I hope they all left the event inspired about the options available to them in the coming years.”
