Careers Resources are in a dedicated area in the Independent Learning Centre (ILC) and accessible to all. The Learning Centre Manager can help with any queries relating to these resources. Mr Smallwood is available in A1 to help students with any careers related enquiries in more detail. There are also noticeboards for any relevant Careers events and activities outside our main hall. Students are encouraged to look at regularly, for example, College Open dates are also displayed here.
There are many websites that give Careers information, advice and guidance. Here's just some suggestions-
