Progression & Careers Advice

Progression & Careers Advice

Each year our students participate in community projects, charity work and fund-raisers; exhibitions and performances; work placements, ambassadorial roles and cultural visits in the UK and abroad.

These events help to build confidence and independence and give students a real flavour of the future opportunities awaiting them as adults.



Careers Programme

We aim to equip learners with the knowledge, skills and opportunities to enhance their employability profile and prepare them for their next steps.

Through a broad and exciting programme, students will be able to embed key employability skills and make them an outstanding prospect for universities and employers.

Students will be ably supported by staff across the College to allow them to follow their individual paths and secure their progression to Higher Education or employment.

Next steps & university

Whether you plan to study at uni or want to start your career immediately, we provide one-to-one help to plan for your future.

Events are held to help you understand your options and gain useful advice. These have included a gap year and volunteering fair attended by major global companies offering work experience opportunities and a seminar from a ‘Dragon’s Den’ entrepreneur.

As well as this, we hold a number of Higher Education events throughout the year, which we encourage you to attend. At these events, we arrange for over 60 universities to visit our campus each year so you can speak to them and research the huge number of choices available to you.

We will also discuss these choices on an individual basis and will help you with the UCAS application process.

Work Experience

Whether you are studying a Vocational or A level course, we know what an important part work experience can play in securing a place at the university of your choice, or in a successful job application.

We have developed excellent relationships with companies across a wide range of areas, offering crucial experience to our students.
