Your Future Career: Getting Started

Everything we do at the college focuses on our students gaining the skills and experience they need for progression to higher education and/or employment. We will give you information, advice and guidance to support you in exploring the opportunities, making a decision and then applying for your chosen next step.

The College uses Start Profile, an impartial and national careers website, to support you in this journey, and to record careers activities taking place. This website enables you to set up your own profile and create a ‘Locker’ – similar to a Record of Achievement, that you will have access to during and after your time at College.

To get started, please register at www.startprofile.com (if you haven’t already got an account). Complete your profile (the four boxes under ‘About Me’) and then click on ‘My Careers’ to explore jobs that may interest you.
