Kick-start your Career

Employers are putting more emphasis on experience when it comes to their job vacancies. Even entry level jobs typically require some relevant experience.

But what does experience actually mean and how can you get it?

Our student development programme involves employer contact which is key to providing work experience opportunities all year round – not just for one week. And we have hundreds business connections at GC to make that happen.

If you know exactly what you want to do we can connect you with businesses in that industry to give you the platform to kick-start your reputation and build contacts for the future.

If you’re not quite sure what you want to do yet, we can provide you with opportunities to experience all kinds of industries to help you discover the kind of work you’d like to do.

Who do you want to be?

We’re not robots! Every single one of you will have individual qualities that bring value to a business.

Are you particularly organised, confident, a good problem solver, or excellent communicator? These are the types of skills employers are looking for.

Our Learning Mentors and Employment Coaches can help you to identify your strengths and weaknesses.

We’ll work together to develop your confidence in the things that you might not have much experience in, while nurturing your existing talents to make you really shine. We’ll also help with your CV or university application too.
