Richard Huish College recently welcomed back former student, Rosie Hather, to inspire the current crop of Huish Business Degree students.

Rosie, a graduate of the Leadership and Management Bachelor’s degree at Huish, returned as a Guest Lecturer on behalf of Taunton Association for the Homeless (TAH), where she is currently employed, to run a session on effective communication in business with current Business and Management Foundation Degree students.

Rosie said "It was great to revisit Richard Huish College where I spent 3 years studying my degree. It was my pleasure to get up in front of a brilliant bunch of degree students to teach them about the importance of great communication in business and how it can lead to success. As Fundraising and Communications Officer, I work hard to raise awareness of what we do and raise the funds needed to keep our valuable service going.”

TAH supports those at risk of homelessness and those who have become homeless. As well as providing 150 rooms across 15 properties, TAH offers key 1-to-1 support, an outreach team, a college to build on skills and confidence and assistance into private but affordable accommodation through their letting agency.

Louisa Clavey, Business Degree Course Manager, said “It was wonderful to welcome Rosie back to show how effective communication and marketing works in business, helping students to further apply class learning to the work place which is a key part of our long established, practical degree programmes”.
