External Career Information Websites
This collection of resources contains useful information about what your options are for the future. They are good for finding out about a broad range of careers with detailed job profiles including entry routes, job prospects and skills required. Many of the websites have their own careers matching exercise for you to complete, which is often a good starting point.
We support all students to develop the skills and confidence to make considered career decisions and opportunities to progress to positive destinations. Our tutorial and student development programme is mapped against the CDI Framework, our vision for careers and stakeholder feedback.
