Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG)
The College achieved the Matrix Standard in February 2016 and the report noted ‘there are cohesive links between advice and support services available for students at the College, including those between personal tutors, careers advisors, staff in Welfare Support and Student Services. These links contribute to learners’ progress towards successful completion and achievement, and all IAG services are well explained in prospectuses, during induction weeks and at tutorials.’
As a student you can access information, advice and guidance through a structured tutorial programme, for example help with UCAS applications, job seeking and volunteering opportunities. Careers advice is a part of each course and takes place in various ways, such as work experience, industrial and educational visits, assignment work, tutorials, talks and discussions in class. Our Student Advice Centre staff can give you guidance on all career related matters or you can book an appointment with one of our Employability Officers to discuss the next steps you can take.
We offer important tutorial support to all our students.
