School Leavers' Challenge

School Leavers' Challenge

Are you up for The Challenge?

The TARGETcareers School Leavers’ Challenge is a national competition that tests year 12 and 13 students on their strengths and work readiness. The 2017 competition saw students that made it to the top of the online leader board invited to the grand final at the BT Tower. At the final, students were pitted against each other across a number of challenges to find the overall winner.

Why take part? Two reasons: the chance to compete against thousands of other year 12 and 13’s to be crowned the TARGETcareers School Leavers' Challenge winner, and because every single entrant will receive a personalised report on their top strengths and how they can be used when planning their career.
