About City

Professional development

Professional development shapes everything we do. Enabling skills development and enhancing the sustainable employability of our students is core to our values, therefore we regard career management skills and professional development planning (PDP) as paramount in supporting our placement scheme.


The PLU promote professional development by helping students focus on planning in pursuit of achieving excellence, building a portfolio of skills, employability, and understanding the professional, legal and ethical issues that underpin the professions.

With strong engagement with employers, we deliver a comprehensive and successful framework for supporting students to realise their career potential and for ensuring our students are equipped with the skills for business.

We are always looking for employers to collaborate with in order to support our students with their professional development – through participation in delivering workshops, lectures or other forms of support. If you would like to get involved please contact us.
