South Devon UTC students invited to Education South West Careers Fair
Coombeshead Academy were delighted to host the Education South West Careers and Higher Education Fair where there was much buzz and excitement as students from Coombeshead Academy, Kingsbridge Community College, King Edward VI Community College, Dartmouth Academy, Teign School and South Devon University Technical College came together to meet representatives from high-profile employers and education providers.
We were delighted to welcome over 120 delegates from many organisations, businesses and education providers including universities: Oxford Brookes, Exeter University and Marjon University.
Amongst the other exhibitors were leading employers such as the Armed Forces, NHS, Centrax, Babcock International, Devon & Cornwall Constabulary, the Royal Navy and the Met Office. One exhibitor commented “It was great to speak to students from so many different year groups and to have the opportunity to discuss their future education and career options.”
There were many visitors at the Careers Fair, who greatly benefited from the opportunity to talk to higher education providers and employers. One parent commented that “It was a great event, brilliantly organised and had an excellent range of universities and employers which were inspirational to the students.”
Thank you to all the exhibitors and visitors who attended and for helping to make the event such a success.
