Overview

We ensure that our students are aware of opportunities available to them through our employability and career development service. Our Employability Co-ordinator is responsible for this service.

Our students’ future careers are one of the main motivations for undertaking a course, and career development is therefore a key strategic priority. Career development requires a mix of employability building blocks, namely understanding, self-awareness, personal development planning, and the development of skills of self-presentation, not only of academic achievements but also extra-curricular activity including work experience.
