Get to know Michael, your Careers Guidance Officer!

Initially my role at the college was split between student recruitment and careers guidance but over the past few years this has developed into a purely careers guidance related role.

I am currently aligned to the faculty of Digital, Creative and Access to provide students with impartial Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance.

I do this through individual 1:1 appointments and tailored group work sessions as well as supporting at our Enrolment and Open Events to help guide students in choosing the right route for them.

My favourite aspect about my job is the variety that the role brings and providing students with the tools and confidence to succeed in their lives after college. Deciding what to do with your future isn’t always an easy decision, so it’s great to be able to talk your choices through with somebody.

Regardless of background, education provides everybody with a platform and opportunities to succeed and better themselves relative to their personal goals.
