For The SCCB InBusiness Network
The current academic year is coming to an end and the South and City College InBusiness Team have been reflecting on another great period of opportunity!
Successes for B2B , but in particular projects that have created incredible platforms for students , helping to develop career pathways through really exciting activity.
The NFB Employability and Enterprise programmes were great examples of delivering results for young construction students. Breathing ‘fire and passion’, college learners attended a ‘Dragon’s Den style event to ‘pitch’ to 6 InBusiness Members, and what an amazing evening ! One of the students secured a job with Subway and another was offered mentoring support for his business idea.
Employability ‘speeddating’ interviews took place and delivered ‘real life’ advice from the ‘coal face’ . Business leaders who supported included those from Keepmoat, Subway and FasTrack Management Services . ‘Interviews’ were through a rotation method , with each leader interviewing the students for 15 minutes , then moving on to the next . All of the young college ‘job seekers’ gained ‘real life’ experience – as it really happens.
The South and City College InBusiness Team would like to thank all of their members for a really incredible year of achievement.
Linking Business and Education is working at South and City College. The InBusiness Network creates great B2B opportunities and more crucially helps model the future workforce of the region – giving real life experiences to students AND creating jobs for our young people through the platforms created by working with our partners.
