Looking back at a very successful inaugural AGCAS Cymru Wales Conference….
On the 14th September 2017, USW hosted the inaugural Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS) Wales Conference at the USW Conference Centre. The conference committee were absolutely thrilled to exceed the target of 100 delegates, with guests travelling from across all Welsh HEIs.
Euros Evans, Head of Careers & Employability at University of South Wales and Chair of AGCAS in Cymru Wales commented on the conference:
“This was an excellent launch event for AGCAS Cymru Wales. With a turnout of over a 100 colleagues from across Wales – it was a great opportunity to network and to meet new colleagues. Many thanks must go to everyone who contributed to the conference including the organisers, guest speakers and to those who delivered workshops.”
The conference was extremely well received with great feedback from delegates, with AGCAS President Shelagh Green commenting:
“The warmth of the Welsh welcome and the enthusiasm and interest from colleagues was fantastic. I was heartened to hear the similarity of agenda between Wales, Scotland and the UK.”
