Careers at Queen Mary's College in Basingstoke Given a Boost

Careers is clearly signposted for pupils at Queen Mary's College in Basingstoke, part of the Enterprise M3 Careers Hub, following the successful completion of the Careers and Enterprise Company’s Careers Lead Training, by Victoria Barnes, Director of Learning: Admissions, Progression & Engagement at the College.

Following the successful completion of the programme by Victoria, Queen Mary's College was awarded a grant of £1,000 by the Careers and Enterprise Company. This was used by the College’s ‘Progression Hub’ team to create artwork to signpost students to the careers space on campus. In addition, £150 was awarded for a 100% successful completion of Gatsby Benchmark 1 (focused on providing a stable careers programme), as part of the Enterprise M3 Careers Hub summer term project.

Commenting on how the funding supported careers education at the College, Victoria said:

"Every year we host a Queen Mary's College conference for students to learn more about a specialist subject and then debate this in order to develop important skills for their personal statements and CVs. The theme this year was: 'Will AI make us happy'? We funded artist Emma Reynolds to talk to nearly 80 students who benefitted from the event."
