The Royal Navy, NCS and Former Students Get Involved in Careers Week

College News

Presentations from the Royal Navy, the National Citizen Service and former students were among the highlights as a busy Careers Week came to an end.

The event which began on Monday 5 February and lasted a week saw organisations such as universities, apprenticeship providers and businesses deliver talks and set up stalls in the College Centre.

After a packed start to the week, students continued to enjoy talks from industry leaders and further education providers.

On Wednesday, Sport & PE students were visited by Solent University who discussed their Coaching Innovation Programme (CIP) which is available to their Sport Coaching and Sport Development students who want to make an impact in their community.

Delivering the presentation were two former Itchen students who now study at Solent, Chloe Lammas and Divina Alo Ilolo.

Also on Wednesday, the Royal Navy delivered a presentation to Public Services students giving them an insight into the lives of the two officers delivering the talk and also information about how they could enrol.

Thursday saw the National Citizen Service give students a taste of what an eventful summer with the NCS how to offer. The scheme gives 15-17 year olds a chance to experience adrenaline-fuelled challenges whilst also boosting their CVs and UCAS applications.

These presentations were alongside presentations in classrooms from the likes of Brighton Film School, Hampshire County Council Legal Careers and Itequal IT Apprenticeships.

We would like to thank all the guest speakers and organisations who visited the college this week.
