Careers Week logoThis year the college celebrated National Careers Week by holding a very successful Careers Fair in the Student Common Room on Tuesday 3rd March. The event was organised by the Careers team and there were over 20 exhibitors in attendance, and over 250 students attended, both as class groups and individuals. 

Organisations participating included Barclays, Halifax, NHS, City Link - The Brokerage, The Institute of Chemical Engineers, Adecco and Kaplan. These representatives were on hand to speak to students about the industry and opportunities available within their companies. 

In addition, we were also fortunate to have Springboard in the college for the day who brought along associates from the hospitality industry, including staff from the rapidly growing Premier Inn chain and the prestigious 5-star hotel 'The Lanesborough'. This employer engagement gave the catering and hospitality students the enjoyable opportunity to be involved in interactive demonstrations in the kitchens and the Rouge restaurant, and to learn from these professionals about opportunities within the industry.
