    I've recently finished my degree with first class honours as of September 2017, and have been looking around for work and graduate schemes that interest me.

    Since I'm someone who's organised, good at editing and writing, and always curious and interested in helping other people, I'm pretty sure I'd be pretty good as an advisor in work, careers, community opportunities, education, mental health and so on.

    Does anyone know any grad schemes or opportunities where I could train and get a Level 4 NVQ in Information Advice and Guidance while also working and learning on the job? I currently don't have the funds to do the diploma off my own back, but if there's a way that I can work and get the qualification at the same time as a graduate trainee, that seems like a great arrangement for me.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

    I work in a sixth form and they sponsored me to do the level 4 diploma in CIAA. You initially need to find a vacancy for a careers adviser/any similar position in education and work your butt off to show them that your personality is worth them investing in and see if they’ll sponsor you at some point!
