Invitation For Year 10-13 Students To Attend Free Virtual ZSL London Zoo Animal Careers Conference
On 12th July 2021, ZSL will be running our first virtual ZSL Animal Careers Conference! This inspiring event has been run before on site and is ideal for students in Years 10-13 who are interested in pursuing a career with animals. Over the course of two virtual sessions, attendees will hear from a range of speakers at ZSL, including animal keepers, veterinary professionals, conservationists and scientists. Through a series of short talks by the experts, facilitated question and answer sessions and interactive competitions, students will gain an understanding of different roles at ZSL and hear advice on how to get into such careers.
As a school based in our local boroughs of Camden and Westminster, we would like to offer you the opportunity to send students to attend via 5 sign-ins. This will be free of charge, we would simply require some participant feedback at the end of the event. You could send 5 individual students, 5 classes or groups (facilitated by a teacher) or a mixture of the two.
