Study, work and volunteer abroad event: Stand Out in a Global market 2019 – 25th October 2019  at St George’s Centre, Leeds, LS1 3DL

Remember Stand Out in a Global Market 2016? Your students found it really insightful and motivating! It will be taking place again this year in Leeds so register now to secure places for your students and help them see the benefits of international experience!

Organised by Euroguidance UK, the event will inspire young people to kick-start their careers by gaining experience abroad. This free one-day event is open to all young people aged 16-18 and is being held on the 25th October 2019  at St George’s Centre, Leeds, LS1 3DL – the same place as last year.

Talks and workshops will take place alongside an exhibition, with topics to be covered ranging from how to make the most of international experience at home and abroad, gap year options, applying to universities overseas and the impact Brexit may have on your plans. Click here for more information and to see videos from past events, or read our blog post about last year’s event to get an idea of what the day will be like!

How to register:

Places at the event are limited. Therefore, early registration is essential. To register your school, please email sogm@aspire-igen.com or reply to this email.

All registered schools are guaranteed places for 10 students (+ 1 staff place). If you wish to bring more students, please get in touch to discuss your requirements. Whilst we believe that the event is as interesting for staff as it is for students, we are also happy for young people to attend unaccompanied.
