Inspirational guest speakers and employers gave visitors to a Counselling Placement Fair some fantastic advice and insight into the profession.
Held at Ardleigh Green campus in Hornchurch, the Fair brought together students over the age of 19 who are studying Counselling courses at New City College, with an array of knowledgeable people from the industry.
Mark Smithers, Dean of Higher Education at New City College, said: “The Fair was such a valuable event for all our students. The guest speakers were so motivational and informative about the difference the counselling profession makes to so many members of our communities. We learned that counselling changes lives and very often saves lives.
“After hearing from the speakers, the students found it invaluable that they could visit the stands at the Fair and were able to talk to key counselling providers about placements and opportunities to further their studies and careers. We had such positive comments about how important the event was from everyone.”
