Getting a Job
We want to make sure that when students leave college, they are best placed to progress onto skilled employment. The courses we offer combine high-quality practical and theory so that students develop industry-standard knowledge, skills and behaviours required for the workplace.
The Careers Team support this by reviewing CV’s, holding mock interviews and giving general advice and guidance about how to get a job.

Behaviour and attitude
Employers will expect students to have developed professional standards of behaviour and attitude during their time at KMC. Students should be willing to adopt a positive and upbeat attitude, be eager to learn and develop their skills, be open to feedback and want to make the most of their employment opportunities.

Engaging with a variety of activities at college will help students to develop and strengthen their employability skills. this includes taking part in enrichment activities such as volynteering, peer mentoring, being part of student voice or joining one of our successful sports teams.
After enrolment, all students are added to the KMC Careers Team. This has tons of information and resources that students use to help manage their own career choices. There are lots of fun online quizzes, courses and assessments that students can do to develop the professional skills that local employers are looking for.
Here are some useful websites that can also help students to identify their strengths and skill:
