Our professionally qualified Careers Guidance Team is here to help you plan for your successful future. Speak to the Careers Guidance Service about your course choices, career aspirations, employment goals or university options - it’s a free and impartial service. 


What is careers guidance? 

Our Careers Guidance Advisors provide information, advice and guidance to help people make informed and realistic choices about their education, training and employment choices.


What can it help with?

We can help you to identify options for suitable educational choices to get you the qualifications you need, look at up to date labour market intelligence to find out which sectors have healthy recruitment forecasts, build your C.V, identify any skills gaps you need to work on to make you stand out from the crowd, advise on job searches and map out your journey to that dream job!


What do we offer?

  • Guidance interviews - We’ll talk through your career ideas, assess your strengths and areas for improvement and agree an action plan for your next steps to get you to where you want to be. 
  • C.V. and mock interview sessions - If you are applying for a job, we can offer support with your C.V, letter of application and even give you a mock interview to make sure you are fully prepared to get that position. 
  • Drop in enquiries - If you have a quick question about careers, courses, funding, job opportunities or anything about the world of work, then drop in to the Learner Hub to see us.
