What our staff say

EEE staff share their experiences of learning and career development at Imperial


I have benefitted hugely from the Department's support for staff learning and development opportunities.  As my role became increasingly involved with advising and coaching students in their careers and job applications, I applied to undertake the postgraduate diploma/MA at University of Warwick in Career Development and Coaching.  

The Department sponsored me paying course fees for all modules and on completion I obtained the PG Diploma with Distinction.  

More recently I applied to and was accepted as a member of the Imperial College Coaching Academy and obtained the LMI qualification in Coaching and Mentoring.  Both these qualifications have made me more confident to coach and mentor students (and others) in the difficult and sometimes sensitive area of career development.  

These externally recognised qualifications have also increased the opportunity for external consultancy and freelance work which has enabled me to extend my network and professional knowledge which feeds back into the work I do in the Department.
