Warrington & Vale Royal College celebrates another successful Employer Week

Warrington & Vale Royal College is committed to being a place where a qualification becomes a career and a key element of this ethos is providing students with opportunities to meet and engage with a range of employers.

This ethos underpins students entire time here at the college, with regular guest lectures, live briefs and visits to industry forming part of all students’ curriculum. This includes a key college calendar event: Employer Week. This is when we really shine a spotlight on our vast employer partnerships and encourage students to engage with a whole host of organisations who take the time to visit them in college.

Today marks the end of our most recent Employer Week, and what a success it has been! Throughout the course of the week, over 30 employers from various sectors visited college to share their knowledge and experiences of working within the industry – and some even had live job vacancies to share with students.

Highlights from the week include the Apprenticeships, Jobs and Careers Fair held on Tuesday 23rd May which saw over 20 employers attend to talk to students about current vacancies within their organisation and provide practical demonstrations relevant to their sector. Another highlight of the week was our Find Your Match event, held on Thursday 25th May, which was attended by 8 employers who interviewed prospective apprentices for roles within their organisations. The morning was a huge success and many students even secured second interviews with these companies!

Preparing students for the world of work is a vital part of what we do at Warrington & Vale Royal College and we couldn’t do it without the support of employers who take time out of their busy schedules to visit our students and provide incredibly valuable insight. A huge thank you to everyone who joined us this week – our students have learnt a lot about their chosen careers.

Are you an employer who can support the college by offering a guest lecture, providing a live brief or welcoming a student into your business on an industry placement? For more information about the range of ways we can work together, email: or call: 01925 494 271.
