  4. Linking curriculum learning to careers
  5. Encounters with employers and employees
  6. Experiences of workplaces
  7. Encounters with Further and Higher education
  8. Personal Guidance

  10. The intended career learning outcomes for students are based on the National Framework and are assessed using assessment for learning (AfL) techniques within tutor sessions

We have numerous events running throughout every academic year such as:

  • Careers Speed Dating
