Our Careers Strategy

Getting you industry ready.

Getting you industry ready.

Farnborough Futures Fair 

We hold an annual Open Event and Careers Fair for our students. It offers the chance to meet teachers from across the College, talk to employers about apprenticeships, and start making plans for when they complete their current course.  

Careers Events 

You will be invited to events that give you the chance to plan your future by meeting those who work in industry or universities. Careers fairs, UCAS fairs and our own progression events are valuable ways of discovering career pathways.   

Careers Library 

Our Careers Library contains all you could need to start preparing for your future. This includes:   

  • Access to computers to write your CV and research careers   
  • Leaflets and information on career planning   
  • Prospectuses from a range of universities   
  • Resources for completing your UCAS application 

Local Vacancies 

Our online Jobs Board advertises local job vacancies that are suitable for our students. Whether it is for part-time work during your studies or for when you finish, many employers advertise through us because they know how great our students are in the workplace!   

Entrepreneurship 

For students who are thinking about entrepreneurship, our staff have a wide range of skills to support you with getting started and preparing to launch your idea. 

Personal Careers Meetings 

At our Careers Library you can access one-to-one sessions where your individual needs can be met. This includes advice on choosing a career path, finding job vacancies, preparing for interviews and more.  

Industry connections and talks 

Part of your course includes an Industry Placement, which will give you a taste of the working world. You will also benefit from industry talks, where professionals visit the College to share their career journeys and advice on what you need to do to get on the career ladder.   

Labour Market Information 

We ensure our qualifications are relevant to the current and future needs of industry and have invested in resources to provide students with up-to-date labour market information.  

Degree Passport Scheme 

Choosing A Levels, a T Level, or a Level 3 programme? Thinking about going to university? We can help you put your best foot forward when applying with our Degree Passport Scheme. This combines tutorials, information and important dates, visits to UCAS fairs, and ongoing support to help guide you to the right course and university. 

Higher Education Workshops 

Thanks to our relationship with the Higher Education Outreach Network (HEON), many students can benefit from workshops, classes, and talks to support their transition into higher education. You can read more about this initiative here
