Careers and Employability

Careers Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG)

Here at Riseholme College we take your progression very seriously.

We have a dedicated Careers Co-ordinator who is on hand to support you to make informed decisions about your future.  They are available during your time at College to talk to you on a 1:1 basis and offer you advice and guidance.  If you wish, you may also bring your parents, guardians or a friend to these meetings.  To book in to see the Careers Co-ordinator, contact Student Services.

The College is accredited to the Quality in Careers Standard and the Matrix Standard for information, advice and guidance relating to careers.

Employability – RecruitableMe

The College’s positive destination figures (where students go when they leave college, eg employment, higher education, apprenticeships etc) remain well above national average.

This is in part due to the vocational nature of our courses and the expertise of our teaching staff. This excellent work within the curriculum is also underpinned by a range of central RecruitableMe workshops and self-help guides. RecruitableMe is the College’s own brand for everything associated with employability and progression.

RecruitableMe guides are designed to enhance your understanding of employability and develop new and existing skills to give you the edge when competing for jobs, university places etc. These guides are available through Student Services and on iLearn.

Whilst enrolled as a college student, you will also have the opportunity to work towards a RecruitableMe Passport. The Passport supports students to evidence the development and attainment of 22 employability skills. Achievement of the Passport is built into the group Personal Professional Development (PPD) tutorial sessions.
