We’ll be talking to the students from all three years of the courses – Freshers to Final Year students now starting to look towards employment.

We need your help – We’re looking for 10-15 local businesses to support the session on “Meet the Industry”. We plan to host an ‘Open Floor’ style session with the various businesses placed around the room so that Students can come and talk to you about your career, businesses and any Post-Graduate or Apprenticeship Schemes you may offer. Refreshments will be available.

We’re happy for you to bring a stand/company banner and any relevant material you may have.
