South Gloucestershire and Stroud College, is holding a Careers Expo on 2nd and 3rd March to showcase the vast number of progression options that are available to them.
The event has a sustainability theme which is at the heart of the College’s ethos – to become carbon neutral by 2030.
John Walker, Head of Careers at SGS College added:
"SGS College is committed to providing students opportunities that radically changes lives and society.
As part of our 'professional futures' strategy, the Careers Expo which is taking place on March 2nd and 3rd, at our WISE Campus, will give 1,200 of our level 3 students the chance to have meaningful encounters with 16 Universities and up to 30 local companies.
Whilst they discuss university course choices, work experience, summer jobs and apprenticeships with the experts, students will enter a challenge to make the event ‘Carbon Net Zero’. They will pledge a personal action around food, clothing or travel which has a carbon credit, that offsets or exceeds the carbon emissions of the event. This innovative approach will encourage a can-do attitude in students, that small life decisions and bigger career choices can make a positive difference to all."
This is a joint venture with local MP, Jack Lopresti, who’s office helped organise the event and which he will be attending on Friday.
Jack Lopresti, comments:
“I have been working with SGS College to help organise the Careers Expo 2023 which offers a fantastic opportunity for students to interact with employers and apprenticeship providers, and universities. The event will be all about students’ potential prospects and what they can be doing to give themselves the best possible start in their chosen careers. “I am delighted to support SGS College which offers a model for education and shows great results in supporting technical education and guiding people into thriving industries and valued careers”.
