It’s about young people finding purpose, discovering what matters to them, their place in the world, the point of studying and getting up in the morning. Sometimes people think careers is just information about options and planning for the future. It’s so much more. It can give hope, meaning, purpose, self-esteem and the ability to navigate the challenges of life. – Liane Hambly

I studied an Undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Sunderland, and started working in Careers way back in 2002. I recently completed my Level 6 Diploma in Career Guidance and Development. In my free time I enjoy playing hockey and running, in October 2021 I ran the Virtual London Marathon, and raised over £700 for charity.

Our full time Careers and Employability Team provides careers information advice and guidance on how to apply for apprenticeships, jobs and university as well as helping students to identify and obtain voluntary work placements as part of their current course, their LinC activity or just because they want to help and support the local community. For more in-depth guidance we have qualified careers staff, who you can arrange a careers guidance appointment with. Regardless of a students future plans the college provides high quality careers support and guidance through the curriculum areas and through our team of Progress Coaches.
