Careers and what next?

We know there is no one-size-fits-all solution to your education and the huge range of options available for you to choose from reflects this. From foundation degrees and vocational courses to apprenticeships, there will be something that suits you, giving you the best possible chance to make your education and of course your future, your own!

We have two professionally qualified Careers Advisers that can offer the following advice and help:

  • Help with choosing courses for potential students, parents and professionals
  • Face-to-face confidential career guidance interviews
  • Advice on CVs, interview skills and job search
  • Information and advice on apprenticeships and other training opportunities
  • Support with applications to university and higher education

Once you’re a student here, you’ll have access to a whole range of support, including from our Advisers on Office 365.

Schools Liaison

Our Schools Liaison Coordinator helps young people get the advice and support they need to make informed choices, and can offer the following services:

  • Presentations and seminars for pupils about what the college can offer – for instance the courses we run, the additional support available, sports and activities, our facilities and the application process.
  • Taster Days – either at college or at school. This gives pupils the opportunity to try out various subjects in interactive and practical sessions with our tutors
  • Campus and facilities tours for students and teachers

In addition, the Coordinator can attend careers fairs and other events to talk informally to students and parents to provide them with more information about the college and the courses on offer.

To find out more, or to arrange a Taster Day or attendance at a careers event, call Evie Bennett on 01235 216 301.
