We have a team of Careers Advisers, all of whom are professionally qualified and based at the main site of the Working Men’s College. They can assist you with questions you may have about course progression, job seeking, applications to Higher Education etc. They will help you assess your career options and enable you to set realistic goals. Your careers advice appointment will be confidential and impartial.
Job search and employability
The Careers Adviser can discuss the ways in which you can search for jobs, voluntary work, apprenticeships, make job applications or gain help with any upcoming interviews you may have. You can also have your CV checked before you send off your application.
Job and voluntary opportunities are advertised on the noticeboard next to the lift in Ruskin Café.
If you would like to seek advice about your next steps a careers adviser can help you consider your options for further study.
Funding for your course
You can talk to a Careers Adviser If you would like to gain more information about funding your course via a loan. Please note the careers adviser can only offer information about loans, they are not able to help you decide whether the loan is the best option for you or to help you complete your loan application.
If you are currently studying on a Level 3 diploma course at Working Men’s College and are applying to university, a Careers Adviser can offer you information and guidance on applying to university and checking your personal statement.
To book an appointment with a Careers Adviser please fill in a form at Student Services within the college. Your tutor might also suggest a referral be made for a careers appointment. Appointments usually take up to one hour. We also hold 15 minute “drop-in” sessions for quick queries where you don’t need to make an appointment.
If you have already made an appointment with a Careers Adviser and need to cancel it or are running late, please contact Student Services in person or by telephoning 020 7255 4759 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
