CAREER TIPS FOR STUDENTS FROM INDUSTRY EXPERTS
High-flyers in the crisps, soft drinks and stationery business inspired students at City of Wolverhampton College with stories of how they have progressed in their careers at a motivating industry presentation.
Around 75 students studying for catering and hospitality, bakery and business qualifications heard from managers at Tyrell’s Potato Crisps, Red Star Beverages, and BIC about their personal career journeys, the range of job opportunities and progression routes available in their relevant industries and the skills and qualifications required by employers.
Heath Arnfield, curriculum manager for hospitality and catering at the college, said: “The event was a great opportunity for the students to hear from speakers who have worked in the industry for many years and to inspire them to think about their own career plans and ambitions for the future.”
The event was organised by Working Options in Education, a charity that aims to help state educated students aim high and realise their full potential by helping them to understand how to research all options available to them and advise them on the skills and knowledge employers are looking for.
