Access to the Careers Service
    The Student Services Centre is fully accessible
    The Careers Service is on the second floor with lift access
    There are accessible toilet facilities throughout the building
    Parking is extremely limited. There are only two accessible car parking spaces.  However, the Grand Arcade Car Park is nearby and has many accessible spaces.

Access for appointments with careers advisers
    One of the careers consultation rooms on the second floor and all consultation rooms on the ground floor are wheelchair accessible.  If you use a wheelchair please notify the Careers Service on making your appointment so that we can ensure an appropriate space.

Access to resources
    As in any library some information is on shelves that may be out of reach for some users. Do not hesitate to ask Information Staff to help you access any materials you need.
    We have an overnight lending collection and most other material is reference only. If a student uses a personal reader or other equipment for reading we will lend all material out for use outside the Careers Service.

Access to events and sessions
    All Careers Service run events are in wheelchair accessible venues.
    Presentations by employers are booked by them in a variety of spaces in the town, some of which are in heritage buildings without good access.  Please check access to such events before attending.   

Contact the Careers Service Information Team at or 01223 338 288 to discuss any requirements you may need such as materials in a variety of formats (USB stick, coloured paper, Braille etc)

Careers advice and information for students with disabilities.


The Careers Service is committed to making our information and resources accessible for all users through universal design and usability.  Our web based information and resources should be accessible with assistive technologies and  separate resources for disabled users should not be required. 

We aim to meet at least the double-A standard of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, as defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). However, technology develops swiftly and should you find that any assistive technology that you use isn't compatible with our resources please do let us know.

Older areas of the website are being reviewed, and updated. Until this is complete, some of our web pages may not meet all the criteria of the double-A standard.
