Careers Information

National Careers Service
At Adult Education and Community Learning we have good links with the National Careers Service. We are pleased to say they are able to support us in the delivery of our careers and employability courses on site. We are also able to signpost learners to the National Careers Service and one to one appointments are available in a number of ways including telephone, digital and face-to-face. At present, the NCS are unable to deliver any sessions on a face-to-face basis due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We are hoping to welcome the sessions back in the autumn depending on the situation at that time. Please ask your tutor for up to date information.

The NCS continue to be available on text, telephone and through their website here. They will continue to support you in your career pathway. Please bear in mind that services such as these will have an increased volume of enquiries and will therefore be experiencing busy times in the current employment situation. Once we can offer NCS within Adult Education & Community Learning again, we shall be negotiating with learners which workshops they would find beneficial.
