Careers Support at New College

New College is committed to providing students with a high quality Careers Education and Guidance Service. Our aims include helping students to make informed and realistic decisions about their education and employment plans.

The College is committed to providing impartial guidance at all key decision points, whether that is prior to college entry, on entry, during time at college or advice at exam time and beyond.

We hold events throughout the year that include speakers from local universities and employers, and support students in choosing their options beyond college. We work hard to support students who may be seeking employment or apprenticeships with application form preparation, CV writing and interview practice. Individual careers guidance is provided by trained specialist Progress Tutors who have experience in providing careers advice for young people. Careers Guidance interviews are available by appointment.
