Elmwood Careers Event 2017

More than 400 visitors attended the annual careers event, held recently at Elmwood Campus.  As usual the event was well supported by the local workforce and specialist employers from further afield, with more than 40 exhibitors offering students an insight into future career trends.  It also gave students the opportunity to network with employers in their field of study and participate in the eight workshops taking place throughout the day.

This year for the first time, five local high schools including neighbouring high school Bell Baxter.

The event was organised by SRUC’s Learner Engagement Team, managed by Alison Boyle.  Alison said:

“It was wonderful to see so many students and pupils have the opportunity to engage with our exhibitors, and staff, while getting a real insight into the many courses and  progression routes that SRUC offers.”

The event which is in its fourth year, will be moving to Ayr campus next year.
