Careers and Employability

Careers Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG)

Bishop Burton College has recently been selected as the only vocational college across the Humber to join the Careers and Enterprise Company’s newly appointed Careers Hub. The Careers Hub brings together schools and colleges to work together with employers, careers professionals, universities and training providers, to improve careers education. The aim of the Hub is to enable schools, colleges and training providers to achieve the eight Gatsby Benchmarks, by sharing good practice and meeting the targets of the Governments Careers Strategy.

We are also pleased to announce that we have been awarded the Humber LEP Gold Standard for Careers Information, Advice and Guidance. The Standard is designed to fit the requirements of the LEP in terms of the provision of robust and impartial careers services and was used to assess the quality of the provision provided by the college. This award is now known as the Quality in Careers Standard and is nationally recognised.

The Careers Advice page is available on iLearn, providing online information about careers, employability, apprenticeships, UCAS and more. Students can access this area to research their options and book an appointment with our Careers Coordinator.

Careers Coordinator

Our Careers Coordinator at the college is Gemma Daddy. Gemma is currently studying a Level 6 Diploma in Careers Guidance and Development and has secured a place to study a Level 7 PG Cert in Career Leadership. Gemma can be found in Student Services, behind the main desk.

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.

To get in touch with Gemma please email gemma.daddy@bishopburton.ac.uk or call 01964 504111 and she will respond to you within five days.

Employability – RecruitableMe

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 a range of central RecruitableMe workshops and self-help guides. RecruitableMe is the College’s own brand for everything associated with employability and progression.

RecruitableMe guides are 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. These guides are available through Student Services and on iLearn.

Whilst enrolled as a college student, you will also have the opportunity to work towards a RecruitableMe Passport. 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.
