asphaleia Learners Attend Networking Event in Bognor Regis

asphaleia has recently opened their doors in Bognor Regis to help support more young people to achieve qualifications. As a part of their employability class, the young people had the chance to visit The Social Enterprise Networking Convention at the Pheonix Centre. This networking convention allowed young people to meet and greet a variety of people who could help them with their future careers. The young people engaged wonderfully in speaking, listening and discovering the stands themselves. At first, they were hesitant to interact with new people but afterwards stated that they felt they had overcome a big obstacle.
In class afterwards, we asked all of our young people to write about the experience they had had. One of our young people wrote: “What was so good about going to this event was that I got to see what these people needed to achieve before going into the business they are in. I am only just back in education and it gave me the ability to see further than just passing. It has reminded me that I am here for the future as well as right now.”
Well done team Bognor and a massive thank you to everyone who took part in The Social Enterprise Networking Convention for letting us talk to you.
