Futures Team

futures

As part of FYi Learning Resources Team, the Futures Team coordinates the Careers, Advice and Guidance, Employability and Enterprise within college.

Our main focus is to ensure all students have access to career education, development and guidance. We provide students with opportunities through: 1 to 1 career meetings, workshops, guest speakers, career fairs and themed weeks.

This is to highlight the importance of being prepared for the world of work, the skills that are needed and how to be successful in their career plan.

We also help students regarding work experience- for more information on this please click here.
