Career Development module

Could you benefit from having a motivated and enthusiastic university student in your classroom or organisation for up to 70 hours? Or maybe you already work with one of our students and want to encourage them to further develop their employability skills.

Hosting a Career Development module placement can help you gain a fresh perspective, give you a chance to share your good practice and increase your opportunities for staff development.

If you are a teacher, or work in community education

Student tutors are positive role models who work alongside teachers, supporting learners with their studies and helping to raise their aspirations.

In our most recent full-scale consultation, 90% of placement hosts commented on the added value delivered by student tutors to teachers and learners.*

If students work with your organisation as either employees or volunteers

Students will contribute proactively to meet and enhance the aims of your organisation. You can advertise an opportunity for a student through Vacancies Online.
