Lauren is still available to contact via email if you require any careers advice – email@example.com.
All staff at Stockton Sixth Form College are passionate about Careers Guidance and Student Progression. The careers information, advice and guidance provided to students at Stockton Sixth Form College are based on the Gatsby Benchmarks and in line with the governments Careers Strategy for secondary schools and colleges, we have updated our Careers Strategy and Programme. We have also created a useful careers information guide for parents/carers, all documents are available below.
In addition to students receiving support from teachers and tutors, the college has a dedicated careers advisors (Lauren Greenwood) who is available to provide students with relevant, up-to-date and one-to-one careers guidance and guide them through their next steps, we also work closely with Youth Direction, who hold on-site confidential career guidance appointments with students on a weekly basis. To book an appointment with Lauren or Youth Direction, please email Lauren firstname.lastname@example.org
Here at Stockton Sixth Form College we have excellent links with employers across the Tees Valley, from schools and hospitals to law firms and accountancy practices, supporting students with work placements and visits. For many competitive careers, such as veterinary science, dentistry and teaching, work experience is required for entry into higher education. Therewith, Faculty Managers and tutors work closely with students wanting to progress into these sectors to ensure these placements are secured in advance of applying to university or apprenticeships. Our links with local universities are equally as strong. Students interested in progressing to university are offered the chance to visit open days, residential visits to Oxford and Cambridge, trips to Russell Group institutions and taster sessions at Teesside University, the University of Sunderland and Northumbria University. Universities from across the UK also come in to college to deliver a wide range of enrichment workshops and they also attend our annual Careers and Progression Fair.
