Networking Events

The OKS Association offers a series of OKS Networking Events for specific sectors and industries.

These aim to promote peer to peer networking and also encourage younger OKS, perhaps still at University or recently graduated, to socialise and network with older OKS who may have many years experience within their industry. Current pupils from the sixth form are also invited to these events, helping them to decide which university courses to choose and the most productive co-curricular activities to undertake which will help them gain access to the industry when they graduate.
