With employability for our students as a main driver of these Awards, Fashanne will be holding a series of workshops at the Metronome building in Nottingham focusing on enabling students to bridge the gap between university and the workplace in the most productive and efficient way.

The selection of attendees will be the choice of each university and numbers will be dependent on capacity.
