Careers and employability services


By providing high-quality careers information, education and guidance, the Careers and Employability Service at the LCCA endeavours to empower students to make informed career decisions and develop lifelong career management skills. 

We support our students by enhancing their career development goals and helping them pursue employment opportunities. Our services are available to all LCCA students throughout their studies and after graduation. These include:

Internships and Jobs

Undertaking an internship during your studies is a great way to make contacts in the industry and find out more about the sector you are interested in. Internships are also a useful addition to your CV. We support students and graduates in finding internships and jobs in the creative industries. We offer you a wealth of opportunities by advertising jobs, organizing triannual on-campus job fairs, and connecting you with a variety of employers. Career support is also available to help you with the application process.

Project Briefs

We are inundated with opportunities to enter and participate in competitions and live briefs with commercial partners. Live briefs are a great opportunity to showcase your talent and build relationships with potential employers. It also ensures you have exposure to the commercial world, which will be beneficial when starting your first creative role.

Visiting Lecturers

We invite lecturers from across the creative and commercial world to ensure that your learning experience is enriched with different perspectives. This allows LCCA to remain relevant to the needs of the creative industries.

Workshops

Our career training and development programme is available throughout the year and all students are encouraged to participate. The programme focuses on developing students’ skills in areas such as: career planning, job search strategies, CV and cover letter writing, interviewing techniques, personal branding, and more.

“I was very happy when I found out I had been selected for this internship through LCCA career’s department. I felt like I was getting a chance to experience the real fashion industry. I had to use prints and shapes in my work, which I really enjoyed. I’d never designed kids-wear before so I am happy. I think at work, it is important to feel like you are part of a team, and to feel connected to the people around you. That's why I liked working with Celsa, it was a pleasure for me and did not feel like work.”
