Resources for you
In the sections below you will find lots of helpful information and resources on careers and employability.
Basic Job Information - The Careerometer
The Hub at Blackburn College is where you can get Information, Advice and Guidance on everything related to careers, work and employability. We provide a range of information and resources as well as specialist advisers for you to speak with in person.
Book in for an hour long appointment to see an Adviser. Your adviser will talk to you in depth about your requirements and help you choose the best option to get you where you want to be.
Appointments are available Monday-Friday between 9am-5pm. Contact us for the latest availability. If you struggle to get into college we can arrange to do a session via Skype. Please let us know at the time of booking if you require this option.
We run drop-in sessions during term time, so if you have a quick query (10 mins max) then you don't need to book in advance, just attend one of the drop-in sessions below:
Beacon Centre Main Reception
- Monday to Friday 11am - 1pm
- Twilight Session - Thursdays 4pm - 6pm
Please note - We will only ever cancel a session where we are unable to provide staffing due to reasons beyond our control. In such circumstances either an alternative session will be scheduled OR you will be offered the option to book an appointment.
If it's more convenient we are happy to provide information and advice via email.
