Higher Education and Employment Fair

October 2, 2018

Students were able to explore a variety of post-College options at HSDC’s Higher Education & Employment Fair last week.

More than 1,000 students attended the annual event on 28 September, which gives the chance to find out more about specific university courses, Apprenticeship programmes and volunteering opportunities.

Many representatives from more than 70 universities and employment sectors said how ‘impressed’ they were with the event, held at the Havant Campus.

Sue Holly, Lead Careers Adviser at Havant & South Downs College, said: “The Higher Education & Employment Fair has been running for many years at the College and we are fortunate to have built up a fantastic reputation for the event.

“It is a confusing time for students with the many exciting opportunities available to them and events such as these allow them to build up contacts, gain advice about their next step and talk to people who can help and inspire them from the world of university, employment, volunteering and Apprenticeships.

“This support works in conjunction with the work that is already being delivered by the careers and teaching teams across the two campuses.

“About 1000 students attended on the morning across both sites and the feedback from the delegates was really positive with many comments about how enthusiastic, well-prepared and interested the students were and what a credit they were to the College.”

HE Manager Dom Thompson said: “Having 70 plus universities and employers in addition to our own HE at HSDC was a great opportunity for students to see all the potential options available to them. The hall and marquee was busy all day which was good to see.”
