In Thursdays lesson we had Rebecca and Chris come in and talk to us about this years Freshers Fair as this will be a case study we will have a 1500 word essay on.
Freshers Fair is an induction to the college showcasing the opportunities available for the students, where stalls are set up to engage students. External companies are invited in to advertise jobs and volunteering projects. Rebecca and Chris discussed the issues they have or could face when organising the event such as due to logistics they had a short time scale to set up tables and chairs, attendance issues in previous years and unavoidable issues which can be industrial action and natural causes.
Rebecca then showed us the areas of the college they used for the event and discussed what she would like to see happen for future freshers fair events.
