The ELATT Careers Service

“ELATT’s mission is to help our students gain the skills they need to flourish in life and work. Central to this is making sure that each student gets professional, independent careers advice from a qualified specialist, in addition to the employability support and work experience opportunities we offer in-house.

We’re very pleased to work with our careers partner Prospects and a range of industry partners to help us achieve this.
