Alumni return to SSTO

Hayley, Anthony, Caroline & Alex
The SSTO was the venue for our Tourism, Hospitality and Events Division's inaugural Leavers and Alumni event. Around 130 students were in attendance as four of the Division's Alumni shared their experiences since leaving UCLan.

Anthony Cardwell, Caroline Hinchliffe and Hayley Bartholomew delivered presentations detailing their journey from undergraduate study into employment, while Alex Grebenar explained his route into postgraduate education.

Division Leader Jane Shaw was delighted with the event: "It was the first time we staged something like this and it was wonderful to see so many of our students take part - hopefully we can turn it into an annual occasion.

"Our programmes aim to prepare students for a successful career in their chosen industry and it's great for them to hear how previous students have progressed. I'd like to thank Anthony, Caroline, Hayley and Alex for taking the time to attend and share their experiences."
