Testimonials from Colleges who attended with their students
We understand that bringing students along to any event can be hard work, finding the time and then rearranging the timetable, organising minibuses and then trying to encourage them to make the most of it while they are there, that why we make it as easy as possible for you once you arrive. We put on a full timetable of engaging speakers, a choice of workshops and plenty of time for networking with future employers so your students will have plenty to do. We use student volunteers to help you get around during the day so you can relax, spend time with your students and see them making great connections for their future. We mix all this up throughout the day so whether they are straight in talking to employers or would rather hang back until they've settled in it has something for everyone. The format of the day is below for those of you that are interested but the most important thing you need to know is that it's not fixed and we'll make it as flexible on the day as it needs to be to give you and your students the best experience we can!

Every event is unique and we are always on the lookout of new and interesting people to engage with your students! The keynote speeches are often the most popular and inspiring part of the day, students leave buzzing with ideas of they next adventures or a newly developed sense of where they might fit in the world. Workshops are delivered by real people, professionals who are in industry, who know what its like to start out and who have built careers for themselves. We like to create as much choice and variety as possible for the students so they get to choose which workshops to attend depending on their particular interest.
