Information, Advice and Guidance

The College has a qualified team of guidance staff who are on hand to provide expert support throughout your time at College.  They can help you explore the career options available to you, help you to choose the most appropriate course and help you to plan what to do when you’ve completed your studies at the College. 

The College’s tutors will also advise on the career opportunities available in a particular vocational area, the courses available and the progression opportunities in that particular area. They can tell you more about what the course is like, what kind of things you'll learn, how the course is organised, how you’ll be assessed and what previous students have gone on to do.

If you're not sure what you want to do or even which career is best for you, just ring and make an appointment to see our guidance officers or talk to them on the phone.  The number is 0345 120 0044.

The College’s support team is accredited to the East Riding Gold Standard and the Matrix Standard for information, advice and guidance.
