STUDENTS from The Sixth Form College have been getting advice on what to do after they finished their education with an Employer Event on Wednesday.
The event saw over 30 different organisations descend on Solihull College’s Blossomfield Road campus to set up stands and talk to students about their options. A wide range of different employers were present, as were the armed forces, the police and careers and recruitment agencies.
The health sector was featured with representatives from Solihull Primary Care Trust, Solihull MBC and the Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health Foundation present. Other sectors included construction, car manufacture, engineering, chartered surveying, financial and legal services. Local businesses like Jaguar Land Rover and the Ramada Hotel were also at the event, while staff from Fitness First represented the leisure industry.
Jim Clulee, the senior careers advisor at The Sixth Form College said: “Events such as this and the Higher Education Fair that we hold each summer are excellent opportunities for our students to gather expert advice. There are so many choices open to them, whether they decide to go straight into employment after College or go on to university. These events are aimed at helping these young people make the correct decision for them.”
The next event of this sort is the Higher Education Fair, which The Sixth Form College will be hosting on Friday July 3. Representatives from a host of the most popular and prestigious universities in the country will be visiting the Sixth Form to give advice to students.
