Your work and career

We’ll help you to get as much as you can out of your time here, so that you can go on to find – or create – work that excites and rewards you.

Employability skills, career planning and professional practice are embedded in each of our courses. And with accredited courses, the option of a professional placement year, and field experience you’ll have a professional advantage when you graduate.

Placements and volunteering

Placements are a great way to build your confidence, get work experience, earn some money and help decide what career path you want to take while volunteering gives you valuable experience and a different way of learning.  Some courses have placements embedded and some give you the opportunity to opt to take a voluntary placement and complete a practical project with a local community or voluntary organisation.
