Careers and Employability Advice
Loughborough College employ a Careers Officer and Employability Co-ordinators who are professionally trained and have extensive experience of arranging work and industry placements and supporting young people and adults into employment or further training. They follow a professional code of conduct ensuring that you receive impartial and confidential support.
Careers drop in sessions
If you would like some career related information or advice e.g. you are unsure about your options on finishing your course, then a drop-in session may suit you. This service is available for learners or anyone thinking of studying at Loughborough College – contact the Job Shop to see the dates, times and locations.
If you can’t make a drop-in session or need more confidential or in-depth guidance e.g. you have no ideas about what to do in future, then a careers appointment may suit you. This service is available for learners, ex-learners or anyone thinking of studying at Loughborough College – contact the Job Shop to make an appointment.
All full-time FE learners will have access to a programme of careers education tutorials throughout their learning journey. Advisors work closely with tutors to arrange careers sessions that cater to their ability and include a range of topics relating to Careers and Employability e.g. CV writing or apprenticeships.
