Careers Advice

Here at Hull College, 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
  • Visiting speakers to deliver talks on career specific subjects
  • Visits to employers to experience working environments
  • Opportunity to enter skills competitions to master skill specific projects to become world class talent (Check out the Alumni page to read about our students success)
  • To gain confidence and experience of attending interviews and essential interview skills.
  • Supported Internship Programme for students with Special Educational Needs and/ or Disabilities
  • Extended work placements

Impartial and High Quality Careers Guidance

All students are entitled to high quality independent careers guidance to help assist individuals in making and implementing informed educational and occupational choices. We have a number of internal and external careers advisors who students are able to speak to confidentially regarding their career specific needs. Our friendly and supportive staff can assist students with a number of career related enquiries such as:

  • Career related information and how to get there
  • Information of other training providers and agencies who can assist students to reach their potential and future aspirations
  • Interview skills
  • Class talks
  • CV writing skills
  • UCAS applications

Our team work closely with staff, students, external agencies and employers across the Group to promote careers and host a number of events and resources to raise aspirations with students.

For further information or to speak to our Careers Advisor, please email, call 01482 598860 or visit our careers room in the Student Services Hub.

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.

Student Support

Everybody needs a little help sometimes and nothing should get in the way of reaching your potential. Students are central to everything we do here at Hull College. As well as our extensive range of courses and study options, we offer excellent support services to ensure your time with us is both a positive and productive experience.  

If you need further information/details on the support services we offer, please email David Greenway (Interim Safeguarding Lead)

Student Services Hub

The Student Services Hub is located behind reception in the Chesters building. If at any point while at college, a student needs support, this is the area to visit. The Student Services Hub also has a quiet room for students to step out of college life, a 'Grab and Go' shop, to support students with food, clothing for interviews and sanitary products. The Wellbeing room can be found within the Hub, while many external agencies are also located here to offer advice and support. Our Safeguarding team is also available in this area.

Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance (Ceiag)

Our aim is to support you on the journey to your dream job, and we have a team of fully qualified impartial careers advisors ready to meet your needs. All students at the college are entitled to high quality and independent 1:1 careers guidance to support them in acquiring the knowledge, skills, attitudes and attributes to manage their life, learning and work. Appointments with careers advisors can be made via the Student Services Hub.

Additional Learning Support

The college has a specialist team of Learning Support Assistants (LSA’s) available to provide dedicated support to students who require it. It is essential that students who require additional support should notify the college of any learning difficulty or disability before starting any course.

Support is also available for any student who requires assistance with English, maths or language skills by specialist Learning Assistants (LA’s). Support can also be given via Study Hubs and the English and Maths Success Centre.

Financial Support

Financial support is available to students who face the greatest barriers to entering, continuing and succeeding in Further Education. For 16-18 year-olds, funds are provided by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) to colleges and then distributed to those students whose effective participation in education and training may not be possible without the provision of appropriate levels of financial support.

Free Transport

If you are aged 16 to 19 and studying a full or part-time course you may be eligible to apply for a Student Maintenance Allowance. As part of the SMA bursary, you will also be eligible for free transport to and from college.

Free Meals

Students aged 16 to 18 who received free meals at school will be able to apply for a meal deal voucher to use on campus. If you are aged 19 to 25 and are subject to a Learning Difficulty Assessment (LDA) or Education Health and Care Plan (EHC Plan) and ESF students aged 16 to 18 are also entitled to a free meal depending on whether you meet the proposed criteria.


We provide a wide variety of play and learning opportunities for children under five years of age at the childcare centre at our Queen’s Gardens campus. For more information, please call our Childcare Centre Manager on 01482 598931.

Pet Therapy (Angel)

Pet Therapy is a popular therapeutic approach that has long been accepted as a powerful aid in offering psychological, emotional, social and physical support for students. With this in mind, we are proud to introduce Angel, our new Learning Support Dog.

Angel is a Labrador Cross who was abandoned as a puppy before being rehomed with Zailie Barratt - Director of Learner & Customer Support Services at the college - when she was ten months old. Angel is now 15 and loves to enjoy life, long walks, occasional treats and, most of all, she likes to be stroked.

Angel’s dog breed is known for its mild temperament. She has been assessed by a canine specialist and, although there is never a guarantee that any dog will not bite, Angel has been assessed as being of mild temperament and suitable to come into college to aid the development of our students.

Angel will walk around the college site with a handler at all times and will aim to help calm, build confidence and bring enjoyment to our students who may be experiencing issues with anxiety for whatever reason.

Whether it is a drop-in session or a one-to-one appointment, Angel will be on hand to soak up the stresses of college and everyday life. Students can benefit educationally and emotionally, increase their understanding of responsibility and develop empathy and nurturing skills through contact with a suitable, calm dog.

Hull College and its grounds remain a no dogs site; however, special consideration is given to Angel and she will be clearly identifiable, wearing a ‘Service Dog’ vest and harness. The welfare of both Angel and our students are always at the forefront of our minds.

Hull College Counselling Service

Need to talk? Free and confidential counselling services are available to all Hull College students who need to talk about mental health, stress or other issues affecting their emotional wellbeing.

We offer counselling and wellbeing support to all of our students whatever your back-ground or situation, whether you are on full, part-time or apprenticeship programmes.

The Counselling Service currently supports students by offering online and phone counselling, as well as face-to-face support.

If you would like to contact us, please email or text 07860 023367 and our Counselling Service will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

If you are a student at the college and wish to refer yourself to the service, please follow the link below and complete the referral form. We will then contact you to book an appointment: Counselling Service Referral Form

If you are in an emergency situation or there is an immediate threat to life, please call 999 for Police, Fire, Ambulance or Children and Families Services.


The college recognises that it has a legal and moral duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our students. When you start with us, we want your time here to be an enjoyable, rewarding, fun, and safe experience. Safeguarding you is very important to us; we want you to feel safe and to be safe. You are our number one priority and we take your safety and well-being very seriously.

If for any reason you feel unsafe, because of something that is happening to you in college, or outside college then please speak to your tutor or student coach who will support and advise you. If for any reason your tutor or student coach is unavailable then you can speak to any member of staff or request to see the duty manager at any of our main campus reception desks or visit the Student Services Hub, which is located behind the reception in the Chesters building. You can also report a safeguarding concern via our 'Whisper' reporting section on our website. To do so, please click here.

When you enrol with us, you will be provided with information that tells you what to do if you are concerned about something or feel unsafe. This includes emergency contact details for a range of local services for when you are not in college, and feel unsafe. There is a Safeguarding Team, who are available to talk to if you have any concerns, are unhappy, or even if you are worried about the welfare of a friend or fellow student. You can talk to one of the team about such things as bullying, accommodation problems, abuse (in any of its forms), self-harm, drug or alcohol issues, domestic violence, or whatever may be a concern.

children who are looked after and Care Leaver Information

Hull College works collaboratively with the Local Authority to ensure appropriate arrangements for monitoring and supporting the progress of looked after children and care leavers in line with their age and development are in place, and as they progress through further and higher education. Our aim is to:

  • Assist and support young people to apply to the appropriate course at college.
  • To help young people maximise their potential.
  • Facilitate staff in the college and social care settings to work effectively with care leavers in line with the Children Act 1989 Guidance and Regulations Volume 3: Planning Transition to Adulthood for Care Leavers (2010)

This collaboration with the Local Authority covers:

  • Careers guidance, applications to college, and support at interviews
  • Information sharing
  • Practical and financial support to care leavers
  • Specific support to care leavers to maintain college places, for example our designated LAC Mentoring Service
  • Moving on from college
  • How to resolve issues and problems

Working collaboratively with the Local Authority enables early identification through pathway planning and (e)Peps. Prior to enrolment the designated person for LAC meets with the Lac coordinators and social workers to identify any specific support needs and any potential barriers to learning. Information is then appropriately shared with the members of the curriculum area directly involved with supporting that student. We regularly facilitate Peps and E-Peps and our ultimate aim is to be a single point of access to promote continuity and a consistent support network.

Financial Support to Care Leavers

Young people leaving care are entitled to the equivalent of Income Support Benefit (paid by the Local Authority). He/she will also receive a weekly enhancement. Costs of accommodation until the age of 18 is also paid by Through Care Teams where after housing benefit can be accessed.

For young people who are part way through their course when they reach 18 and where this is part of their Pathway Plan, an application can be made for them to continue to live with their foster carer/host. In some cases, where young people reach the age of 20 they may not be eligible for certain state benefits, but are still actively engaged in education – in such cases, further financial assistance can be offered to meet accommodation and living costs.

Once it is known that the young person has a place on a course then there must be a discussion between the young person, foster carer or social worker and the college as to what exactly is required and how this can be appropriately sourced. Young people who are leaving care face additional challenges when they start a course at a further educational college and they must not have the additional worry or start the course without the proper equipment. Social workers have access to funding to support LAC/Care Leavers with additional tutoring and learning resources, such as the purchase of laptops and other educational resources.

Safeguarding support and Reporting

If you feel unsafe or threatened tell your tutor, visit the Student Services Hub to speak to a safeguarding officer, or talk to any member of staff.

Online Safeguarding Risks

Young people will be using the internet more during this challenging period to stay connected and in contact with family, friends and college staff. On-line safety and risks could well be heightened during this difficult period. Hull College is also using online approaches to deliver training and support. Staff will be aware of the signs and signals of cyberbullying, child sexual exploitation and other risks online and apply the same child-centred safeguarding practices as when learners are learning at the College. The College continues to ensure appropriate filters and monitors are in place via our IT Department.

It is extremely important that professional boundaries do not slip during this exceptional period. Please speak to your line manger if you have any concerns or questions.

With such different arrangements in place, young people could be at greater risk of on line abuse. We remind all staff to maintain the view that ‘it could happen here’ and to immediately report any concern, no matter how small, to their relevant Designated Safeguarding Officer. Learners accessing remote learning will continue to receive guidance on keeping safe online and know how to raise concerns with their tutor, Student Support Officer, Additional Learner Support Team Leader, or Youth Worker.

Peer-on-Peer Abuse

We recognise the potential for abuse to go on between young people, especially in the context of a college closure. All staff will remain vigilant to the signs of peer-on-peer abuse, including those between young people who are not currently attending our provision, and report any concern, no matter how small, to their relevant Designated Safeguarding Officer.

Keeping Children Safe in Education

Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2021) continues to be the key statutory guidance, schools and college’s must follow, however understandably we have made additional safeguarding arrangements in regard to such exceptional circumstances.

The link to Keeping Children Safe in Education, Part 1 can be found below and contains relevant information about safeguarding risks all college staff need to be aware of whether in our outside college. Staff are advised to re-familiarise themselves with this guidance and seek guidance from a Designated Safeguarding Officer if they are unclear about anything.

Keeping Children Safe in Education [.pdf]
Mental Health

Restrictions to movement and contact with other people may mean many learners are more likely to be at risk of mental health and emotional problems. Hull College has made learners, their families, and staff aware via our website of where further support, guidance and advice can be found in Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire. The link below is to our website where relevant local partner agencies can be found here.

e-Safety - Safety Guidance for Online Learning

You have a right to keep information about you private. You only have to tell people what you really want them to know.

You have a right to explore the internet but remember that you cannot trust everything that you see or read on the internet.

Remember not everyone is who they say they are on the internet. You have a right to tell someone if you think anyone is suspicious.

You have the right to not be videoed or photographed by anyone using cameras, web cams or mobile phones.

You have a right not to be bullied by others on the Internet and you have the right to report this to an adult if this happens.

We are all responsible for treating everyone on line with dignity and respect. You should not use behaviour or language that would be offensive or upsetting to somebody else.

The NCA's CEOP Command is here to help children and young people. We are here to help if you are a young person and you or your friend (up to age 18) has been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online, or in the real world. We also have advice and links to support for other online problems young people might face, such as cyberbullying and hacking.

British Values

Hull College is dedicated to promoting values which support our learners to develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility. Students are prepared for life in modern Britain by developing an understanding of:


How we can influence decision making through democratic processes such as the national electoral system, local elections or our own Students’ Union elections.

The Rule of Law

The rule of law, in its most basic form, is the principle that no one is above the law and that the law applies equally to us all, rulers and ruled alike. We are law abiding citizens and we are all accountable to the laws of our society.

Individual Liberty

We understand and exercise our human rights in a safe environment. Students are supported and encouraged to make informed choices about their future progression pathways.

Mutual Respect and Acceptance

We promote the importance of mutual respect through our shared ‘Acceptable Standards’ of behaviour and we actively promote diversity and accept that people have different faiths or beliefs.

We promote these values through our Acceptable Standards charter, which can be found throughout the college.

Equality & Diversity

Hull College is committed to providing an environment that promotes equality for all and celebrates its diverse community.

Everyone is valued equally at Hull College. We do not treat anyone less favourably on the basis of sex, disability, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, religion/faith/belief, trans status, pregnancy/maternity or marriage/civil partnership status. These are the protected characteristics as defined in the Equality Act 2010. Hull College expects all staff, learners, visitors and on-site contractors to do the same.

We expect and encourage our students and staff to work together to overcome barriers and all forms of discrimination and harassment. Through our shared college mission, vision and values, every individual is respected as of right and this should always be reflected in our language, behaviours and the actions we take.

The college is fully committed to the ongoing implementation of its Single Equality Scheme and to complying with all equality legislation, and aiming to achieve the following objectives:

That no unfair or unlawful discrimination will be applied in education, training or employment opportunities.
That the diverse nature of our college community will be reflected and celebrated at all levels within the college.
That the needs and interests of our diverse college community will be fairly represented within the curriculum offered by the college.

During induction, all students are provided with further information about Equality, Diversity and Inclusion within the college and what you can do get involved and make a difference. We want to hear from you and about your ideas, so please get in touch so that we can all make a difference.

If you become aware of discriminatory or bullying behaviour or actions taking place, you are encouraged to report this by either contacting your course tutor or the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion coordinator. The matter will be taken seriously and will be investigated.

Copies of the college’s equality and associated policies and procedures e.g. Single Equality Scheme, Personal Harassment Code of Practice (staff), bullying and harassment procedure (staff), anti-bullying policy (students), student behaviour and disciplinary policy are available on the college’s intranet (Portal: staff / Canvas: students). These are also available in alternative formats upon request from the Marketing department.

What could be the next step at Hull College when your child leaves school?

Full-Time Study Programmes

A study programme is a personalised study programme designed to develop the all-round skills and qualities needed for university and employment. Personal development, employability skills, work experience, digital skills, industry specialised skills, support with next steps and future aspirations and English and maths at the appropriate level are all included within the study programme.

Courses range from entry-level through to Level 4 in many subjects and vocational areas, along with various other qualifications such as BTEC and NVQ.

Levels 2 and above generally require a pass in maths and English at grade 4 and above. However, don’t panic if this doesn’t happen because many subjects will have maths and English support and qualifications to do alongside.

Level 1 courses are a great way to start and test out many subject areas before making a commitment to a Level 2 course.

Vocational Subjects

  • Art, Design & Photography
  • Business
  • Catering & Hospitality
  • Childcare
  • Computing and Digital Technologies
  • Construction
  • Engineering
  • Foundation Studies from Entry Level for SEND Learners
  • Hair, Beauty & Make Up
  • Health & Social Care
  • Media Production, Film & Television
  • Performing Arts & Music
  • Public Services
  • Science
  • Sport
  • Travel & Tourism


Young people can work and gain a qualification at the same time, usually studying one day per week in college alongside four days at work. A variety of levels can be achieved in an apprenticeship, some as far as HND and HNC.

Not all apprenticeships require maths and English at a grade 4, so don’t panic if your son/daughter doesn’t get the grades they hoped for.

Apprenticeship roles in the local area can be found at the following link:

Careers Information

There are a range of staff and agencies available at the College to support your son/daughter with their career decisions and next steps.

Connexions Careers Advice for 16-18 year olds

Aspire iGEN Careers Advice for Goole Learners

Hull College learners will have the opportunity to engage with a number of employers and workplaces, including…

  • Work experience

How do I support my child at College?

Attending College is very different for young people from when they were attending school. College is all about those next steps and preparing your son/daughter for adulthood and the world of work. Now is the time that they need to take ownership of their educational journey and their future aspirations. However, your support as parents/guardians is just as vital now as it was before.

So, what can you do to support your son/ daughter to be successful at college?

  • Have a copy of their timetable and support them with a new routine.
  • Attendance is essential to successfully completing and achieving their course. Ask to see their ProPortal which will show you all of their attendance and learner comments.
  • Attend Parent/Guardian Consultation Evenings.
  • Contact us directly if you have any concerns regarding your son/daughter using the contact details in this section.
What support is there for my child at Hull College?


The College has its own internal counselling service that all learners are entitled to use while studying with us. Referrals can be made by staff or learners themselves via the following email address:

Mentoring Support

Sometimes learners just need that extra person to speak to outside of their timetabled hours. A mentor is a friendly face from a member of staff who is linked to a learner and is able to meet them to chat to regarding any other support needed, how they are feeling, how their course is going.

SEND Support

The College has a range of specialist Learning Support Assistants that can support those learners who have special educational needs and/or disability (SEND). This support can range from meeting at transport points, group or individual support in classrooms, support at break or lunch times or mentoring support. Support can also be discreet.

Maths and English Support

The College has a number of specialised learning advisors that can help support those learners with their maths and English skills. There are also extra study hubs so that learners can access to help improve their skills within maths and English.

Careers Support

Impartial careers advisors are available for those learners who need support with their next steps and future aspirations. There are a number of events planned to support learners with their employability skills and achieving their hopes and dreams.

Student Finance Support

There are times when support is needed to help your son/daughter to be able to financially attend college. This support can be a bursary payment paid into their bank account, travel support, financial support to pay for equipment that might be needed or support with lunches.

Well-Being Room

The College invites a number of external agencies in their well-being room to support learners with a range of issues, ranging from mental and sexual health to support with domestic violence and drug and alcohol issues.

Keeping Children and Young People Safe Online

Hull College recognises that we all have a part to play in keeping children and young people safe online, including in college and supporting parents and carers at home.

Online safety is a running and interrelated theme for our students through a whole-college approach to safeguarding, including our safeguarding policy and guidance, and training for tutors and support staff to raise awareness and how to deal with online safety issues and concerns.

In college, our students are supported with online safety from the point of their induction through the tutorial programme, class discussions and projects, and themed events to raise awareness of the importance of online safety, how and where to raise concerns about their safety in college. We also deploy software to monitor and block inappropriate content and materials on our ICT systems.

We are here to support parents and carers with online safety advice and guidance. We recognise how important it is that children and young people are safeguarded from potentially harmful and inappropriate online material.
