Advice & Help Centre

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.

Our qualified Careers Team who are all members of the CDI, are working alongside your course curriculum teams to ensure you receive the very best advice and guidance, and labour market information for your progression into employment or further study.
