Setting the scene for the ‘Crucial Crew’ event was Steve Folland, Video & Audio Content Writer, Presenter and Editor. Steve started off the event with a motivational speech on gaining experience and the importance of gaining new skills which encouraged our students to enter the two rooms at the Fielder Centre packed with willing employers.
Representatives from a wide range of sectors were on hand to give useful information and advice on future careers, apprenticeships, healthy lifestyles, leisure and volunteering opportunities, employment and more. The emphasis was on providing students with a range of information that they will find useful both now and for the future. Students’ confidence improved as the morning progressed and they spoke with more organisations. By the end they were filled with knowledge and their bags filled with pens, water bottles, phone holders and all other freebies on offer.
