Careers Support for HE Students

Careers Guidance

Employment skills and knowledge are embedded into all learning, teaching and assessment on all of our HE courses. Students are encouraged to reflect upon the experiences they have in their workplaces which enriches class activities and provides the opportunity for students to apply theory to their practice. Guest speakers from industry regularly visit college and share their experiences with our students which not only enhances learning, teaching and assessment but also helps with student career decision making and is aspirational.

The college also has a specialist careers team situated in a dedicated area in the St Wilfrid’s building who help all students to make the right choices for their future. There is information on a wide range of careers, university courses across Britain and students have access to various career databases. Anytime during the recruitment, selection and admission phase and after enrolment HE students can seek advice and guidance from a specialist careers adviser to discuss career plans, progression options and/or information and support relating to student finance and applications.  Please contact for further details or to book an appointment with one of the advisers.

Throughout the academic year the careers team visit HE students in their tutorials to talk about careers and progression options this can then be followed up with a 1-1 appointment.

Each year the careers team organise two events in college, a HE/Progression fair and an Employability Fair to which, both prospective and current students are welcome to attend.
