After College


Whatever your aspirations, our role is to help you be the best you can be.

Our careers, information and guidance specialist can help you plan for your future. We offer up to date careers guidance and information on Higher Education, including talks from and visits to leading universities. We can also help with planning your finances and answer your questions about student loans and funding Higher Education.

Our tutors will help you find the most suitable courses and guide you through the UCAS process, including help and advice on how to stand out from the crowd in a competitive market.

Students on one year courses undertake work experience which contributes to their qualifications, and everyone is encouraged to undertake enrichment activities and gain valuable experience through joining one of our student committees.
