Impartial careers advice is key to future success
Categories: Press Releases
With Higher Education being such a significant personal and financial commitment, and the jobs market being so competitive, making the best possible course choices at age 16 and 17 is critical.
Graham Clark, Principal of New College Telford said: “We’re helping our current and potential students think through the planning for their future in an informed way - so they can make decisions which are right for them. The decisions each student makes are likely to affect them for the rest of their life, so we encourage any students wondering what to do next to get in touch and arrange to talk to a careers specialist if they feel it could help.”
Careers advice can help students gain a better understanding of the value of different qualifications and their real relevance to specific career and higher education choices. This means that students have a much better chance of getting their feet firmly on their road to success.
Although college courses are free for 16 to 19 year olds, the question of University tuition fees often gets raised and the service also has up-to-date information on bursaries, grants and loans available. The aim is to enable students to be in a position to make the best choices for their long-term future.
Graham Clark continued: “We’ve had a lot of positive feedback about our impartial careers advice, and in the current economic climate this is more valued than ever. It’s not too late - we’re enrolling right through September and there are other options available too. To access this service, students and parents can simply call the New College Careers Team on 01952 641892.”
