Careers, Advice and Guidance
In a world that is fast paced and ever changing, it is our responsibility to ensure that our students are prepared and well informed so that they can make decisions that are not based on assumptions and stereotypes. We believe that high quality careers guidance, access to quality LMI and encounters with employers is key in achieving this.
Every student is entitled to a high-quality careers programme as part of their overall education from pre-entry through to progression students preparing for life after College. We put emphasis on the fact that the student journey at West Suffolk College consists of both a qualification and preparation for the work environment.
We aim to raise the aspirations of the students and to give them the information and the strength of character to aim higher.
Mission and Vision
- Our mission is to provide outstanding education for students throughout our community in order for them to become both fulfilled and play their part in being drivers of our regions economy.
- Our vision is to be the centre of a hub or outstanding education and training in East Anglia by working in a wider collaborative network, creating coherent provision across the region.
- Three pillars support our ideas: we aim to enable students to gain not just the right qualification and the best grades, but also the connections with business and character strengths they need to succeed.
West Suffolk College is actively following the Gatsby careers benchmarks and is Matrix accredited.
