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 they can make decisions about their future.

The student journey at West Suffolk College consists of both qualifications and preparation for the work environment. We believe that access to 1:1 careers guidance, quality Labour Market Information (LMI) and encounters with employers is key in achieving this.

We aim to raise the aspirations of our students and give them the strength of character to aim higher.

Our expert Careers Team is available to offer 1:1 advice and guidance support for our current, past and prospective students via email and online.
