Gloucestershire College, South Gloucestershire and Stroud College and Hartpury College are excited to meet you. Whether you're looking to re-train, upskill or change career, you can have exclusive access to local employers.

Our College teams can then inform you about the courses that will give you the key to unlocking your future.

This event isn't just for adults, If you're not sure what you want to do after school, this event will show you the different roles available in local businesses. You can then talk to the college teams to find out about the courses which will get you onto the career path that inspires you. If you do know not what industry you want to break into, find out about more specific roles our employers offer.
