To coincide with National Apprenticeship Week, Strode’s College decided to mark the occasion by running our own Alternative to Higher Education Information Evening, on Thursday 9th March.
Over fifty exhibitors including Sky, Natwest, Thorpe Park 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 talk to our current students about their own experiences.
Students and parents were also given the opportunity to hear some thought provoking presentations from our guest speakers, Sue Taylor from ALPS Partnership Ltd and Klaudia Mitura from Employability Town.
We have had fantastic feedback from attendees and exhibitors alike.
