The College will be holding its annual Careers Fair on Wednesday 22 February, with the aim of supporting the successful transition of young people from education to the world of work.
Students have the opportunity to speak with over 30 businesses, higher education providers and training organisations which will give a real insight into helping the young people be better prepared for work. There will be opportunities to talk to businesses about careers in their organisation and try out some real work activities. Students will be encouraged to find out what employers are looking for and what they expect to see on a CV, as well as talking to employed young people to find out what they do and how they got into their role. Students will also learn how to follow in their footsteps and get information on how to enrol on a variety of University and apprenticeship courses.
The event will also give businesses a platform to meet the employees of tomorrow and to talk about the skills and qualities they look for when recruiting.
Principal of Newton Abbot College, Paul Cornish, said "We are really excited to be running this event for its second year, it will be a fantastic opportunity for young people in Devon to discover a wide range of higher education and career opportunities available to them and it will help them make informed decisions for their future."
Nick Hill, Business Manager of Newton Abbot College, said “We are pleased that so many businesses have agreed to attend this event as it supports the young people from our College and other visiting schools and helps support strong links with the local community, which also has a really positive effect on the young people.”
