Careers & Progression

The main objective in successfully completing your studies will be to enhance your career prospects. As well as the engaging delivery of relevant content and supporting you achieving your HND or Bachelor’s degree, we offer a suite of activities and information to support your onward journey into the workplace. 

What do we offer?

We organise a Careers Fair every term, which is open to all our students free of charge. We use our largest meeting space and invite external exhibitors who have expertise in their particular field. Past exhibitors have included large public services employers, private companies with specialised opportunities such as in the healthcare sector, organisations with volunteering opportunities, admissions officers from universities offering follow-on degree courses, careers advisors and recruitment agencies. Students are able to have one-to-one meetings with exhibitors and take away leaflets to research further. We usually allocate two days for the fairs to take place each term.

 

At DGHE we are known for our personal and tailored support of each student. By means of tutorials and drop in clinics we ensure that we are treating students as individuals; lecturers giving bespoke advice on a student’s particular circumstances whether this is a desire to work in a very specialised area, or in writing a supporting statement for a UCAS application. Your course leader will be the person you can ask to be your academic referee.

In addition to all the face-to-face contact mentioned above, students can access extensive and carefully curated online content. Primarily this is via the College VLE, the partner institutions’ VLE (New College Swindon or Bucks New University) or through the Pearson student portal “HN Global”.

Through all of the channels above we are looking to improve on your skills in the following areas: Interview techniques, writing CVs and cover letters, UCAS applications, job search skills, LinkedIn profile (online footprint) and networking.

If you are one of our students with feedback on our Career Services and want to share anything for example, what we can do better, please get in touch via the suggestion box at DGHE Reception; we want to hear from you.
