The Sheffield College achieves national careers advice quality mark

The College has been awarded the Quality in Careers Standard for demonstrating a consistently high standard of practice, according to a report published this month.

Meeting the standard has involved providing evidence to demonstrate that the following criteria have been met: 

  • A stable careers programme
  • Learning from career and labour market information
  • Addressing the needs of each student
  • Linking curriculum learning to careers
  • Engagement with employers and employees
  • Experience of the workplace
  • Encounters with further and higher education
  • Personal guidance

The College, which was found to be fully meeting all of the criteria, is believed to be the first further education provider in Sheffield City Region to achieve the award.

Sarah Kettlewell, Head of Student Participation and Careers, The Sheffield College, said: “Ensuring that our students receive accurate and independent careers information, advice and guidance to help them go further is vital. We are proud of our success.”

This is the second national careers quality award that the College has achieved this academic year.

The College also received the Matrix Quality Standard for information, advice and guidance services in November 2019.
