What we do

At Westminster Kingsway College, we offer an impartial careers advice and guidance service via drop-ins, booked appointments, telephone and email. Our dedicated, friendly and helpful team are members of the Institute of Career Guidance, and give you comprehensive and up-to-date careers information.

We have a yearly plan of careers and employability activities so that you can get the most from your time at WestKing. The services and activities are planned to meet the Gatsby Benchmarks of good careers guidance and we also take your feedback on services to continuously improve our service to you.

We can help you if you are

  • Unsure or confused about your career or course choices

  • At risk of leaving your course early

  • Worried that you will not succeed on your course

  • Unsure whether you are on the right course

  • Confused about your future choices and opportunities

 

Each year we run Higher Education fairs at our King’s Cross Centre and Victoria Centre, as well as other events throughout the year supported by employers, universities, and other organisations.

We advise teaching staff on developing careers education and planning activities in their courses to help enhance employability and confidence with career planning. We also actively source and advertise mentoring schemes to support disadvantaged students seeking progression into employment, training or education.
