Marjon was founded in the 1830s in order to educate young boys out of poverty. The world has changed, but our values haven’t. Our mission is still to help people to be the best they can be, to aim high, and then higher still. Crucially, we give our students not just the skills to succeed but also the confidence. Without confidence, without belief in yourself, without knowing how good you are, skills can amount to nothing.
Our Personal Development Tutors work with small groups of students to uncover their strengths, build their confidence and ensure they make the most of their uni life. They help students to leave here having unearthed their natural leadership styles, knowing what they are good at, and knowing what they enjoy. They help students to make choices and to build a career that suits their personal values and preferences so that they enjoy their our work and live a fully-rounded and happy graduate-level life.
They are supported in this by the Futures careers team who work one-on-one with students to develop their CVs, application and interview skills and to make crucial career decisions.
