How we support your career journey
The aim of the Adult Career Consultation is to support those searching for a career change, graduates unsure about their next step, or anyone looking to rejoin the workforce.
With 30% of the workforce now changing careers or jobs every 12 months (c. Career Advice Online). It is not unusual to find yourself in a situation, where you are looking to make a change in your career. As life progresses you may find yourself in a position where you're off kilter with your current career, the job that once brought you joy may now bring dread or maybe you never really found what was right for you.
Gaining clarity around the right next step for you can be challenging, it may feel as though you have no options or that the endless list of courses advertised is leaving you perplexed.
