Students’ Careers Entitlement

Selby College is committed to ensuring each student is able to make informed career decisions through understanding the full range of opportunities available to them upon completion of their studies; learning from employers about work and the skills that are valued in the workplace; and to have first-hand experience of the workplace.

To help meet this commitment we have developed the following Student Careers Entitlement:-
