Introduction to Career Guidance

Careers Education, Information, Advice, Guidance & Employability

Information on Jobs, Careers, Apprenticeships, Year Out opportunities, Higher Education, Local Labour Market Information and Employability advice is available in the Careers & Employability Hub.   (Room 47)

Franklin College is delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Humber LEP Gold Standard for careers information, advice and guidance.  This rigorous award was designed to test the quality and impartiality of the careers information given to young people. The award recognises the commitment of Franklin College to support the progression of our students which enables them to make informed decisions about their future. The Gold Standard is jointly funded by Deflog VQ Trust and the Humber LEP. This award is now known as the Quality in Careers Standard and is nationally recognised.

Some of the strengths highlighted in the assessment report were:

  • Strong links with a wide range of universities and colleges, employers, apprenticeship providers and specialist agencies.
  • Excellent support for the most vulnerable students is provided through the Learning Support Team.
  • Imaginative use of a wide variety of media to share Careers information – Careers Newsletter, use of Facebook and Twitter, displays on electronic screens, display boards in curriculum areas.
  • CEIAG is embedded across all curriculum areas as well as discrete delivery through tutorial.

The Careers & Employability Hub in college is situated in Room 47, an open access area well stocked with the latest information including local labour market information, higher education, gap years, student finance, apprenticeships and general careers resources. Students can access this area to research their options. Information is also emailed out to students regularly via a careers newsletter.

There is a lot of information about the Careers Service on our website. All parents/carers of new students receive an email about the career related activities that their son/daughter can take advantage of. Parents/carers are welcome to join a one to one guidance interview with their son or daughter. These can be made outside of the usual times if necessary. Please email, if you wish to make an appointment with our Level 6 qualified Careers Guidance Officer.
