Futures Team

futures

As part of FYi Learning Resources Team, the Futures Team coordinates the Careers, Advice and Guidance, Employability and Enterprise service within the 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 help students prepare for the world of work and help develop the skills that are needed so they can be successful in their career plans.

We also support students regarding work experience – helping to find high-quality work placements across a very wide range of career areas.

Information for current students and staff:
