A Career Development Day event was organised for all students on the 6th and 8th of July 2015. This provided an excellent networking opportunity between DET, HND (Business and Health and Social Care) and the Morgan Hunt Recruitment Agency (led by Danielle Spencer). Morgan Hunt is a multi award-winning recruitment agency in UK, employing over 200 recruitment consultants across London, Birmingham and Manchester, providing specialist recruitment services for over 2,000 clients across a range of sectors such as Business Support, Charity Jobs, Construction, Education, Finance & Accountancy, Human Resources, Healthcare Management and many more. Our students had an opportunity to register their interest in joining this organisation for teaching and business related positions.
Other very important highlights of the day were seminars on CV Writing, Career Development Planning and Mental Health Nursing delivered by a specialist Mental Health Nurse. DET and DTLLS Trainee Teachers were also offered the opportunity to attend career development workshops organised by Morgan Hunt to gain CPD hours for the QTS/QTLS application in future. Students gave positive reviews after attending the sessions and made suggestions for inclusion of other topics in future sessions.
