We offer high quality services aimed at enabling you to make a successful transition into employment or further study. Most of what we offer can be accessed independently, and we strongly recommend you make full use of our website and calendar of events. Our resources will often give you the answers you need or enable you to conduct your own career research. However, you can also come and speak to us for further help.

Our Drop-in Service provides an opportunity for you to have a conversation with one of our advisers to assess how the service can best meet your present needs.
