Deputy CEO of , James Kennedy said the Careers Fairs are critical to connect students to future employers who can help them take the next step in their career.

“The Careers Fairs were another huge success, and really help demonstrate what our students can gain from studying with us,” said Mr Kennedy.

The likes of Transport for London and the National Education Union were represented at these events. We were hoping 1000 students would attend. We far exceeded that target and saw over 2000 students attended the fairs across our campuses, which reinforces the demand for these initiatives. We are changing lives through education, and by enabling our students to make meaningful connections directly with industry, we are doing just that.”
