Inspiring local students…

The conference and careers fair is being organised by second and final year Level 3 students at the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy at Folkestone College. The conference is part of a module entitled ‘Managing a Business Event’ and will support students in completing assessment elements of their study.

This event is designed to inspire the students attending and raise their aspirations – some of them haven’t considered going to university or don’t have the confidence to believe that they can go into any sort of career at this point, so it is always good to hear from people who were once in their shoes and hear about their career journeys. Hence the importance of local business community involvement, show casing career potential in the local area. We believe this will be an extremely beneficial event as it is student organised and covers a lot of their course criteria.
