Careers service

The need for specialist careers advice and guidance has never been so important. It is vital that people of all ages have access to good quality, realistic and impartial information, advice and guidance about the full range of career pathways available to them.

Our careers service consists of a team of qualified career guidance professionals who are dedicated to helping people to progress successfully into education, employment or training. Our careers service is open to learners and members of the public alike – and it’s completely free.

Our vision is to provide an all age careers service that is empowering, meaningful and inspiring. We aim to encourage our clients to fully develop their potential in order to achieve satisfying and rewarding futures.

Our mission is to make the Careers Service fully accessible to all of our learners as well as the wider community by providing impartial information, advice and guidance that is fully integrated, accessible and highly regarded. We aim to encourage successful transition into further study, training or employment.

Matrix-Accredited Service

Our Student Services and Information Centre is a Matrix-accredited service. The standard is the unique quality framework for the effective delivery of information, advice and guidance.
