Whether it’s our annual visit to the Skills Show at Birmingham NEC for careers inspiration, or university visits to help you decide on the right course for you, our programme of careers visits has something for everyone.
Talks from employers will keep you informed about the local jobs market and job opportunities and our enrichment activities will help you develop additional skills to give your CV the wow factor.
If you are looking for seasonal vacancies, part-time or full-time vacancies, the Agency Job Shop lists the latest job opportunities.
Work experience, employer projects and meaningful volunteering opportunities are available to all students. Your Course Tutor or Progression Specialist will be able to give you more information.
Here are some examples of activities you can be involved in as a student:
