Student Employability Day

A successful Employability Day with employers from DWP , Aecom and HSBC attending to support our students with mock interviews and career workshops. These skills are vital to our students on the LIVE programme to enhance their skills and support a smooth transition into employment.

Feedback from all employers was extremely positive , they were impressed with the positivity and focus of our students who were able to sell themselves in a mature manner.

Transition and Careers Evening

The event was aimed to support students and parents in making vital decisions regarding their future.

There was a wide range of organisations there to offer advice and guidance.

The Evening was a success and the college will be hosting these events on a annual basis.


Supported Interns


Students have settled in well and have started their Supported Internships with various employers.

They are all working hard towards their transition into paid employment.

Students take part in Birmingham Repertory Theatre non verbal drama ‘Over The Rainbow.

On 11th January we had a visit from the Rep theatre and Strive and Thrive students took part in an immersive, sensory piece of drama based on ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ Students could interact with the sets , the costumes, the characters and the props as they moved around in a carousel experience. It was thought provoking and interesting and the students engaged really well with the experience.

Grounds maintenance

It was a beautiful day on the 30th November and the students of The Hive College made the most of the opportunity to tidy up the school grounds. You can see by the before and after pictures how hard they worked and they all took great pride in the finished result.

Wrapping Christmas Presents

A number of the students from The HIVE College were at Birmingham City Mission on Friday 23rd November to wrap presents for families in need in the local area. They enjoyed every moment, they were treated to hot drinks and chocolate by the kind volunteers there.
