Careers Advice & Guidance
Diane will continue to deliver careers advice over email to all students who require it. For the first years who were due to attend vocational talks over the coming Mondays, all students on these registers have been emailed the presentation to read through at their leisure. Year 2 are advised to make firm choices via their UCAS Track Screens by early May, and apply for student funding by 25 May.
Careers guidance is your passport to the future. We have highly experienced, specialist advisers who, together with your progress tutor, help you make the right choice for your future.
At college there will be opportunities to take part in events such as the Higher Education Fair, educational and employer visits. Whatever your ultimate destination we can help you get there.
Our Careers Coordinator Diane Bate is available to see students; 8am – 2pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
