Over 300 students and their parents attended Strode’s Alternative to Higher Education Information Evening, on Thursday 21st April.
Over fifty exhibitors including IBM, PricewaterhouseCooper, Starbucks and Surrey Police spent the evening talking to parents, staff and students about the alternative options available to them post-College, from apprenticeships to debt-free education. A large number of the companies employed former Strode’s students who were thrilled with the opportunity to come along and represent their company and also to talk to our current students about their own experiences.
The attendees were also given the opportunity to hear some thought provoking presentations from our guest speakers, Sue Taylor from ALPS Partnership Ltd, Charlotte Lightman from National Apprenticeship Services and Karis Stander from Investment 2020.
We have had fantastic feedback from attendees and exhibitors alike.
