"The evening provides the perfect opportunity to help our students begin to develop their ideas about higher education or employment and to make important choices about their futures."

The Bishop's Stortford Independent's news editor Sinead Corr and photographer Vikki Lince will attend along with representatives talking about insurance, law, accountancy, engineering, architecture, medicine, web design/marketing, surveying, construction, physiotherapy and software development.

Claire said: "All of the armed services will be present plus nationwide recruitment companies such as Raytheon Systems UK and the civil service along with many companies who specialise in apprenticeship pathways. There will also be higher education establishments and further education providers present – it promises to be a busy and stimulating evening!"
