Kicking Off Careers at Kensington and Chelsea College!
Residents across West London turned out in force at Kensington and Chelsea College recently to kick start their careers. The college’s Open Day, held at the Hortensia Centre in Hortensia Road attracted a record number of people. More than 160 people turned up to the three hour evening event despite the cold-snap. In addition to getting advice and guidance on the range of courses available at the college, guests were also treated to an exhibition of work created by the college’s art and fashion students.
Sarah Barry, Kensington and Chelsea College Marketing Officer and open day organiser, said: ‘It was one of the biggest turn-outs we’ve had, especially when you think how cold it was. There is a real motivation to learn across the borough. People seem really keen to top up their skills. We even had people enquiring about complete career changes. What made it a truly successful night was the fact we were able to help so many people.’
