Back in March, students learned about Psychometric Testing during a session where Nick explained how to analyse the results in their detailed personal reports.
The innovative Employability Programme at Collyer’s has been uniquely designed by the college to help students into the world of work with the help of taught sessions, workshops, trips and a host of inspiring special guests.
