Support from CNWL Careers staff


Our advisers can help you to stay focused throughout your studies by helping you to set realistic goals and providing you with up-to-date careers information. At the end of each guidance session, you will receive an action plan which will support you with identifying your next steps. Follow-ups appointments can also be made should you wish to see the adviser again.

Our careers advisers spend time at both the Willesden and Wembley campuses and appointments can be made via the course information centre. To book an appointment with a careers adviser contact the course information team on:

What is Labour Market Information (LMI)


LMI tells you about current and forecast job opportunities in different sectors. For example, it can tell you what average salaries are for particular roles, whether industries are predicted to expand or contract, and about technological or training changes. It is very helpful in planning your career, and therefore in helping you decide what course to choose.


The buttons below will take you to information provided by LMI for All - an online data portal, developed by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, which brings together existing national sources of LMI that can inform people’s choices about their careers. ​
