The College Careers Service
The College provides its own Careers Service available to all past, present and intending students. The service operates from all main six Campuses. All of our Careers Advisers are professionally qualified. In addition we have a Community Guidance Worker who works across our community provision. Our services are confidential and impartial.
We offer a drop-in service at most sites alongside booked appointments. The Careers Service is delivered from the Student Services centres at our main campuses. Our services are delivered in partnership with Connexions. If you are aged 14-19 you may be seen by a Connexions worker.
