Careers aDVICE

Here at Hull College Group we offer Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) to support students to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and attributes to manage their life, learning and work.

Careers education does not have a start and end point; it is a fluid and continuous journey supported by a range of activities that help to inform individuals to take their next steps into further/ higher education and ultimately employment or self-employment.

Careers in the Curriculum

Throughout a student’s studies while at Hull College there are a number of career focused activities within the different curriculum areas and centrally that will help develop a student’s employability skills and raise a student’s aspirations:

  • Students studying a Study Programme have the opportunity to complete 30 hours of external work experience to support their career aspirations and employability skills
  • Opportunities to work with employers on projects and commissioned briefs
  • Careers Fest – an opportunity to meet employers and gain an insight to many careers
  • Volunteer Hub. Find out how beneficial volunteering can be and how this can get you further on your career path

Impartial and High Quality Careers Guidance

Quality in Careers Standard

In June 2021, the college was awarded the Quality in Careers Standard Award by the Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

The Quality in Careers Standard is the national quality award for careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) in schools, colleges and work-based learning. It fully complies with the Department for Education’s statutory guidance.

By achieving this externally assessed standard, parents/guardians, employers and other stakeholders can be confident that the careers support provided by the college will help every student to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to take control of their futures.

We are very proud that our compliance with the eight Gatsby benchmarks for best careers provision has been recognised in this way and it remains our goal to deliver high-quality careers education, information to all our students.
