Career Pathways students at Nottingham College have been learning skills to set them up for further study and work, by arranging their own fundraiser event. The students chose a ‘love’ theme, and decided to make up some themed hampers and arrange a ticketed raffle at College.

The stu­dents ran a stall where they pro­mot­ed the raf­fle and sold tick­ets. Some baked cakes and made dec­o­ra­tions on the same theme. The project was a great suc­cess, as they raised £70 towards their end of year grad­u­a­tion celebrations.

Career Path­ways cours­es at the Col­lege are designed to help devel­op per­son­al and social skills along­side gain­ing a qual­i­fi­ca­tion and boost­ing employability.

The key areas of work in the enter­prise project focused around being organ­ised, bud­get­ing skills, mak­ing plans, and writ­ing let­ters for dona­tions, which were all aimed at help­ing the stu­dents towards their future careers. 

It was great to see the stu­dents exer­cis­ing a range of skills, dis­cussing ideas and approach­es with their peers and Col­lege staff. I’m con­fi­dent they’ll do more cre­ative things in the future.
