At City and Islington College, we offer an impartial careers advice and guidance service via drop-ins, booked appointments, telephone and email. Our dedicated, friendly and helpful team are members of the Institute of Career Guidance, and give you comprehensive and up-to-date careers information.
We have a yearly plan of careers and employability activities so that you can get the most from your time at CANDI. The services and activities are planned to meet the Gatsby Benchmarks of good careers guidance and we also take your feedback on services to continuously improve our service to you.

Unsure or confused about your career or course choices
At risk of leaving your course early
Worried that you will not succeed on your course
Unsure whether you are on the right course
Confused about your future choices and opportunities

We advise teaching staff on developing careers education and planning activities in their courses to help enhance employability and confidence with career planning.
