Freshers’ fair boosts career prospects
The event, which was named ‘Go 4 It’ by organisers, aimed to encourage students to pursue their interests and try out new experiences in a bid to boost their career prospects.
A number of agencies, charities and community groups hosted stands at the fair offering students the opportunity to sign up for volunteering, fund-raising, sports, clubs and societies.
Sport student Harriet Beeton, 17, said: “I’ve signed up to volunteer with Crossbar Coaching one day a week, when I’m not in College. It will give me valuable experience and will help my CV to stand out.”
The event also included a climbing wall, archery, a bouncy castle and a football shoot out.
