Information days for careers and guidance staff

Each year around May we hold an information event for careers and guidance staff.

Staff are welcomed onto the GCU campus for a morning or afternoon filled with talks, tours and interactive sessions. These sessions are well attended by guidance and career services from all over the UK and provide a helpful insight into what each of our academic schools have to offer.
