It can be difficult to plan the next stage of your life and there are some tough decisions to make. The Careers and Connections Advisors are available to help talk through the options here at West Suffolk College before you start with us, and once you are on programme we are able to advise you on a whole range of other things including further College courses, University, Apprenticeships, Gap Years and getting into work. The Careers and Connections Advisors also run the Job Shop where you can browse local voluntary and paid opportunities.
You might not believe it now, but there will come a time when you want to leave everyone at West Suffolk College for a new career, another course, or who knows what next? But it won’t be easy. There are so many opportunities that finding the right path can be confusing. If you haven’t mastered the mysteries of the UCAS points system, you don’t know your advanced from your extended diplomas, or you simply need someone to show how to make your next move, we’re here to help.
Check the advice and guidance pages on the student hub first. You’ll find answers to a lot of commonly asked questions there, and plenty of links to more information about further or higher education, apprenticeships and careers.
If you’re thinking work rather than further study, go straight to the employability and job hunting pages.
Friendly people on site
Our quick enquiry desk is next to reception at the main site (ground floor of the Gateway).
Need an answer now? If you’ve got a simple question about careers, apprenticeships, or Uni, you can always ask one of the team at the desk.
Been giving it some thought? You can also book a dedicated appointment if you think you might need more than a few minutes to talk over a bigger question—how much bigger do questions get than what should I do with the rest of my life?
