We offer a careers programme that gives students’ high quality, independent advice and guidance with regards to careers, FE/HE education, apprenticeships and future life choices.

We hold the Matrix standard for our Student Support and planning your career will be an integral part of your programme of study at KCC.

The careers service is available to all students in the college. There is an interview booking service as well as a daily lunch time drop-in session for quick queries.

You will be supported in writing your personal statement and choosing the right universities to maximise your offers. Support is provided by your Careers Adviser and tutors from when you start college right up to the point that you take your place at university.

The department will help you to make informed decisions and to develop your employability skills including CV writing, completing application forms and interview techniques.

“I would like to thank my careers adviser at KCC for his knowledge and time when discussing suitable courses with my daughter and myself. He treated my daughter with the utmost respect and encouraged her to communicate her vision as to how she saw her future. He was positive yet realistic. This I found so interesting as she blossomed before my very eyes.”


“I had complex and emotional issues to discuss which had led to some obstacles in finding employment and even confidence when studying.  My adviser was empathetic, approachable and he put me at ease. He really listened. His practical advice and action plan has inspired and helped me.”


“The guidance and practical help I received from my adviser went well above and beyond what I was hoping for.”
