Employability and Careers

KLC offers a long-established and proactive careers service, which is an integral part of the outcomes from studying at KLC

The end goal of our training is to secure work in the industry for our graduates and we actively facilitate this.

Throughout the course, students are educated on CV preparation, portfolio presentation and professional practice with all alumni having access to our very busy KLC Online Jobs Board. 

For our validated onsite courses, work shadowing is organised for students during holiday breaks and, for those students unable to undertake work experience due to visa restrictions or any other reason, an alternative is provided through KLC’s specially developed "Virtual Work Experience" programme which is also an integrated part of our online validated courses. 

Students are offered multiple 1-2-1 career sessions throughout their course and on graduation, KLC helps graduates find internships, job placements and freelance appointments utilising our KLC Online Jobs Board. Great care is taken to match the student's aspirations and abilities with a suitable practice.

For our non-validated industry-recognised courses, you will also have access to the same KLC Online Jobs Board and your job search will be self-directed, but still supported by the careers service with 1-2-1 meetings available after your studies have been completed.

Employers appreciate the way that KLC graduates have been effectively prepared for entry into the industry with practical and commercial knowledge combined with design skills and nurtured creativity. Consequently KLC graduates are now working in a broad and prestigious range of design companies and there is a history of graduate successes.

KLC keeps in close contact with past students worldwide through the KLC Alumni Association and continues to offer ongoing life-long careers advice.

The Association provides a unique international network of creative individuals and aims to keep them connected with the school and other graduates via news updates, careers support, networking opportunities and the event programme.
