This month we saw C2S Connections return, our quarterly online event that connects students to the business community.

At this event we had 125 students registered from Hartpury College. Upper Sixth Form students joined over 20 businesses to learn more about career opportunities in the region, build confidence, make valuable connections, and build relationships for their future career options.

In response to the current challenges businesses and the educational sector are facing to re-connect students to the business community, C2S launched C2S Connections, our initiative that works to combat these challenges and provide an inclusive, level playing field for all students from all backgrounds. Allowing them to engage and connect with future employers and improve their employability skills.

With a national crisis on skills and future talent available to businesses, it’s even more important than ever to connect with the next generation of talent and showcase your business and future opportunities, join us and secure your place and connect with your future talent pipeline.

This exciting C2S digital event, uses an online platform allowing students and businesses to connect digitally and move themselves around the room, moving tables easily providing the opportunity to meet many people and creates a real time experience, reducing transmission of COVID and the possible spread of infection within organisations and schools.

These online speed networking style events are designed to promote confidence, rebuild relationships, and showcase to young people what amazing opportunities and organisations there are in Gloucestershire and the Southwest. Making valuable connections whilst upskilling young people with digital skills, no carbon footprint, no costs to the educational organisations and fully inclusive! Helping organisations to connect to a diverse workforce of the future and helping students with future career opportunities.
