Careers Service

Advice for Personal Tutors

Key messages to give your students, and advice on when to refer them to us. Writing references for your students.

You are a key influencer in your students’ time here. Encourage them to engage with their personal and career development from first year. Leaving it all until year 4 or 5 is too late and good habits early on will help them fulfil their potential.  

We have developed the Careers Compass with this in mind. Signpost your students to the Careers Compass during your discussions and encourage them to follow its suggestions for action. 

The Edinburgh Award

Encourage your students to sign up for an Edinburgh Award, which is a reflective process wrapped around extra curricular developmental activities. It encourages the process of intentional development and reflective practice and is recognised on students' Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR).
