What can the Careers Service offer me?

Having access to up-to-date career-related information is really important in helping you make decisions about your education and career. Students have access to a wide range of books, guides and online resources, through the Learning Resources Centres, Careers Offices and College Intranet.

We can help you with:

  • Identifying your career options

Whilst at college, students are encouraged to develop their career management and employability skills, which are crucial in an increasingly competitive job market. You can get involved with a range of career related events, activities and opportunities which we organise and promote each year.
