Employability Statement

In 2014, 94% of our graduates were working or studying for further qualifications within six months of completing their degree, according to the HESA Destination of Leavers Survey 2013.

These results reflect our dedication to preparing students for the real world of work. The career-focused learning and practical experience elements of our courses, combined with the social and volunteering opportunities we provide, give you an excellent kick-start to your job-hunting.

Kick-start your career

If you need to find part-time work during your studies, advice about future career options, information regarding effective job applications our Car​eers Service can help. Working closely with academic departments we provide you with opportunities to develop the skills and knowledge required to be successful in a competitive job market.

Get a foot in the door

All our undergraduate honours courses include professional work placements. Teacher trainees have school-based training placements in each of four years. We have specialist staff to assist students in securing placements. Employers are increasingly using placements and internships as a filtering and selection process. Many students find that a successful placement leads to vacation work and even to permanent job offers after graduation.

Our Accreditations 

The quality of our courses is consistently recognised by professional bodies including:

Our teacher training courses lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). 

Our courses are also designed to prepare you for the world of work which is why we work closely with a range of employers in designing our degrees, such as the BBC, Sport England, the Guardian, and Education Leeds.

We offer skills for work and skills for life

Employers are involved in our courses, giving guest lectures, holding informal Q&A sessions, or involved in Dragon’s Den style competitions.  We help students gain real-world experience, for example an in-house TV production team provides opportunities for budding audio-visual programme makers to hone their production and people skills.

Are you a budding entrepreneur?

If you are interested in starting your o​wn business, working for yourself or have got a business idea that you want to get off the ground we can offer information, advice and mentoring.

Outside the box

Our vibrant learning environment means there is plenty of opportunity for your own personal development and growth.  Our clu​bs and societies​ and volunteering opportunities will inspire you to get involved in all aspects of student life, and develop the additional skills and experiences employers are looking for in graduates today. ​​
