Through our industry-experienced staff, excellent employer links and fully trained careers advisors, students can be sure they are developing the skills and experience they need to succeed in their career.
Our Careers Coordinator and designated Careers Leader at the college is Gemma Daddy. Gemma has achieved a Level 6 Diploma in Careers Guidance and Development and is currently studying a Level 7 PG Cert in Career Leadership with the University of Huddersfield.
Gemma is in college during term time, so book an appointment if you are unsure of your next steps or need impartial information, advice and guidance about apprenticeships, courses, training, or to discuss your thoughts around your career. Appointments can be made online by accessing the Careers page on iLearn or by contacting Gemma. Parents are more than welcome to contact Gemma with any questions they may have.
The college’s positive destination figures (where students go when they leave college, e.g. employment, higher education, apprenticeships etc.) remain well above the national average.
This is in part due to the vocational nature of our courses and the expertise of our teaching staff. This excellent work within the curriculum is also underpinned by our Careers Programme, which is designed to enhance your understanding of employability and develop new and existing skills to give you the edge when competing for jobs, university places, etc.
Whilst enrolled as a college student, you will also work towards completing an Employability Passport, which has been externally validated by The Humber Learning Consortium and gained their Kite Mark. The Passport supports students to evidence the development and attainment of the 7 key Employability Skills. Achievement of the Passport is built into the group Personal Professional Development (PPD) tutorial sessions and lesson plans.
