At South and City College Birmingham
Understanding that many students at South and City College Birmingham will eventually start up their own business or develop an opportunity through using their own initiative, The Student Entrepreneur Club which launched at the College recently , has created even more opportunities for South and City College Students .
Personal Development programmes commenced in April with the entrepreneurial individuals that already support the Club sessions, delivering 4 week sessions to students within the college curriculum. Mentoring our young people about the ‘key’ elements of employability. Former Eastender’s Actor Nicholas Bailey ran his first session of 4 at the Digbeth Campus, with Nick delivering some great advice – supported by Guard Group.
Continuing with the theme of ‘celebrity’ status presenters, former Barnet FC and Birmingham City footballer Dave Barnett, now a business entrepreneur, also delivered his first session of mentoring skills at the College’s Bordesley Campus to Sports Curriculum Students.
The College InBusiness Network revolves around working with local companies and individuals, creating opportunities for them through B2B, but also enabling those members the chance to ‘give back’ to the college by supporting student activity.
The College Tyesley Campus also held an ‘Industry Day’ in April , with a number of corporates attending and talking to students about their journey in life – great listening for young minds to help them grow their experience of industry at the coal face !
Student activities like this are ‘common place’ these days at South and City College, and by creating robust links with local business through the College InBusiness Network the college are creating invaluable additional student learning opportunities.
If you are a business that wants to contribute to the future workforce of Birmingham AND would like to secure B2B opportunities from the college network, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to find out more.
