Careers Advice

At BMet, we have a dedicated team of Careers Advisers, who can give you the careers advice, information and support you need to achieve your career goals.

Our Careers Team can help you:

  • Choose the right course to help you achieve your goals
  • Plan your career development and consider the opportunities available including employment, apprenticeships or higher education
  • Write your CV and identify suitable job vacancies
  • Prepare your UCAS form and personal statement for applications to university.

The Careers Team also organise careers fairs, workshops and presentations with guest lecturers from universities and other organisations so you have all the information you need to make an informed choice about your future career.

Careers advice and guidance is impartial and confidential provided by professionally qualified Careers Advisers. You can ’drop in’, or make an appointment to see a Careers Adviser via Student Services at one of our main colleges – Sutton Coldfield College, Matthew Boulton College, James Watt College, and Stourbridge College.
