Careers Support at New College

New College is committed to providing students with an impartial, high quality Careers Education and Guidance Service. Our aim is to support students to make informed and realistic decisions about their education and employment plans.

The College provides impartial guidance at 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.

Careers Programme and Provider Access Policy

Good careers guidance helps to inspires students, and enables them to make informed decisions whenever choices are open to them. The Gatsby Benchmarks provide a guide as to what good careers guidance should look like.

The Role of Progress Tutors and Careers Advisers

Throughout your time with us, your Progress Tutor will help to guide you as you plan your next step after leaving us, whether this is university, an apprenticeship, gap year or employment. They will encourage you to research your options and support you along the way, helping you to plan your future, whether that be in the world of work or university.

However, should you need further support or want to discuss your options in more detail, you can make an appointment with Sharon West, our Careers Advisor and Work Experience Co-ordinator.

How does our Careers Programme Support Students?

As well as assessing our Careers provision against the 8 benchmarks as set out in the Gatsby Good Careers Guidance Report, we also monitor impact of our programme through student destinations. To see how we compare to other colleges click here.
