Hereward College will be organizing its annual employability event on 13 March 2013 with the purpose of creating and nurturing business relationships between its students and regional employers.

After very successful events in previous years, Business Studies students have decided to take leadership this year and organize the "Hereward Celebration Brunch" where several businesses will be networking with students and presenting employment opportunities.

Katy Saunders, a business student at Hereward and one of the organizers of the event, said: "We are excited to prepare and hold this event again. We have been organizing it and working towards this date since September and have really enjoyed the preparation and are looking forward to sharing our work and successes with local business, it should be a great morning for all"

The event will allow learners to have access to a selection of career paths in different industry sectors and to encourage greater employer engagement with the college students in the future by showing visitors to the college what Hereward has to offer. Organizations will get the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of employing people with disabilities. Ex-students from Hereward College have been invited to talk about the success they've enjoyed in their career once finishing college and the impact that Hereward has had in their lives. This will not only allow employers to see the potential of Hereward's students but also to provide inspiration to current students.

Earlier in the month, Hereward College was also visited by Remploy Recruitment, an organization which supports people with disabilities to find sustainable employment.

Paul Sykes, Development Manager at Remploy said:

"We will visit Hereward College to meet with some students and give them a greater idea of Remploy and the ongoing support we offer to help people find and retain sustainable employment. It is great to see Hereward College recognizes the importance of employability skills and hopefully this is the start of a closer relationship between Hereward and Remploy".

The event is connected with the college's strategic objective to develop links with industry and local employers in order in order to generate more external work placements and work experience opportunities for its students.

Hereward College is a general further education college located in Coventry. It offers inclusive provision with specialist facilities and services for students with a wide range of learning difficulties and/or disabilities. Further information is available at www.hereward.ac.uk
