Tracey Hall, CWA Work Experience and Careers Coordinator - Public and Protective Services said: “Another fantastic day for our students with all our military and blue light services in attendance alongside partner organisations and universities all offering opportunities for progression. This event grows year on year and the wider college community also benefitted from the experience this year leading some who hadn't considered a military career to now make it their focus. Many commented on how interactive the event is, giving the students a real feel for their future roles.”

Becky Davis, CWA Work Placement & Careers Coordinator - Sports & Leisure said: “We’re so grateful to all the contributors who came along and engaged with our students. It was such a fantastic opportunity for students to meet and talk to people who work in the roles they are interested in. We also had several ex-students who now work in the industry who came back to inspire our students.”
