CHECK OUT YOUR HIGHER EDUCATION OPTIONS

 

PICTURE OPPORTUNITY

Are you a sixth-form student thinking about higher education or an employee looking to widen your expertise? If so, why not come to the biggest higher education event in the region?

 

The Connexions event, organised by Lincolnshire Careers and Guidance Services, is to be held at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside’s Lincoln campus for the second time on Thursday 29th March, from 9:30am to 3:30pm. The event is aimed primarily at sixth-form students but is also open to those in employment interested in part-time courses.

 

Over 100 higher education institutions and agencies will be represented at the event and over 4,000 prospective students are expected to attend. There will be interactive subject workshops and advisers on hand to answer questions.

 

“This event has always been popular and this year more students than ever will be attending,” said John Herbert, team leader at Lincolnshire Careers and Guidance and organiser of the event.

 

Rob Mayall, chief executive of the new Connexions service for Lincolnshire, said:

“This event is an example of our commitment to working in partnership with others to offer young people information and advice about the wealth of learning opportunities available to them.”

 

Jacqueline Mayer, education liaison manager, added: “We hosted this event for the first time last year and it was a great success. We hope that this year even more students will take advantage of the opportunities on offer.”
