Students discover future careers at academy’s biggest ever STEAM Careers Fair

Hammersmith Academy’s STEAM Careers Fair showcased robotics, hygiene science, model building and more!

Hammersmith Academy hosted its largest ever STEAM Careers Fair on Thursday 4th May 2023. The event focused on careers in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, and welcomed 35 exhibitors from across a wide range of sectors.

The event was open to students and parents from Year 10 upwards, and schools from the West London Partnership were invited to attend.

Top employers and industry leaders, including BlackRock, Amazon Web Services, a number of NHS hospitals, the British Library, AECOM, GSK, and ViiV Healthcare, were among the exhibitors, providing students with unique insights into potential career paths. Exhibitors represented a diverse range of careers, from finance and construction, to creative media, scientific research and sports business, making the event an invaluable chance for students to explore their interests and discover new opportunities.

Stalls featured imaginative displays, including a handwashing test on The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine stand, a famous BBC2 icon, robotics, and a 3D printing station at Imperial College’s Dangoor Reach Out Makerspace. These displays really caught the attention of students, offering interaction with cutting-edge technology, bringing to life the careers on show.

Hammersmith Academy’s STEAM Careers Fair forms a crucial element of the Academy’s extensive careers programme, fulfilling the Gatsby Benchmark 5 requirement of providing encounters with employers. Career fairs bring invaluable opportunities to meet employers and professionals, learn about the skills and qualifications required for different jobs, and develop a better understanding of the job market. Students leave more able to

make informed decisions about their future education and career choices, arming them with the knowledge and confidence to pursue their aspirations with purpose and direction.


Matthew Coulbeck, Secondary Adviser and 14-25 Development at Hammersmith & Fulham Council commented, “It was a great event with such a range of top employers and organisations. The conversations between the students and the employers were very impressive. It was fantastic to see parents there too.

I counted over 30 exhibitors and I had great conversations with Imperial Invention Rooms, OVO, LAMDA, Imperial NHS, HS2, VINCI, RSM, Construction Youth trust, Morgan Sindall and Institute of Civil Engineers.

I loved the booklet and the top seven tips for young people attending.


Overall, it was a successful event bringing young people in contact with a fascinating range of employers and support organisations. It helped young people think of the vast range of STEAM related careers and also the impact of innovation on the future jobs market.”
