Birkdale Collective’s career coaching for students is formed of two main options: individual one-on-one career coaching, or a group career coaching starter programme. Individual coaching is flexible to the student’s needs and can start whenever the student is ready to begin their work with Birkdale Collective’s career coaches. On this page you will find information and relevant links to our career coaching team, pricing, start dates and more.
