Careers Takeover 2022

Episode 3: Paula Giraldo and Juan Pablo Leon Sanchez


On March 9, 2022 David Lipington from the Student Services Team hosted a very special careers themed takeover in honour of National Careers Week 2022.


Throughout the day David and colleagues in the Student Services Team interviewed various professionals around the routes into their careers, and discussed what the realities of the day-to-day roles are, and the types of skills required to perform it effectively. Some of the themes of this day were around wider careers related issues such as those effecting students who have English as a second language, care leavers, issues faced by women in the workplace, and how to manage your mental health and well-being whilst going through that all important job application process.


Morley College London has a proud history of supporting students who are learning English as a second language. As part of National Careers Week Student Services and Wellbeing Manager Pedro Diego spoke with Paula and Juan in their native Spanish about the employment and progression issues they face as non-native speakers.
