Tell us about your overall college experience so far.
Be very careful which course you choose, as with all places some good tutors but in my experience mostly not. Chesterfield (the town) is ok and has everything you need.
How does your college make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?
When I went to collage at chesterfield I was very clear about my career goals. I knew the route I was taking would be difficult, but felt that doing a public services course would be the best start I could have. From the beginning to tutors were very negative about my chances, not because of my academic results which were good but because it is difficult to join the police. This I already knew, the tutors however did not support me in my choice - the police do recruit so why shouldn't it be me. I now feel that I have wasted the last two years at collage, particularly as I go to army cadets and feel what I have learned there has been of far more value. I will follow my chosen career path and I will join the police, no thanks to chesterfield collage.
