Delegate comments included:
“The event was a different event this time, well attended, the students were engaged and asked relevant questions, including some of the parents. It was a productive evening and I am glad to have given up 2 hours of my time to speak to some of the students and parents.”
“Thank you for organising the Big Event! I was really impressed with the quality of conversation at the event. Students and parents seemed generally interested in finding out about the opportunities. There was also a good mix of further opportunities providers, which I’m sure is appreciated by the students.”

Sincere thanks to all who participated and we look forward to an even larger event next year.
