Did you know it’s National Careers Week 1st to 6th March? The week is a celebration of careers guidance in education, with the aim of supporting students to make effective choices about their future career.

If you’re think­ing about your future career options, or maybe leav­ing school soon and need to decide your next steps, we have lots of help and advice available.

Over the week we’ll be shar­ing some insights into some of the ways we help our stu­dents pre­pare for their future careers.

Did you know that here at Not­ting­ham Col­lege, cours­es include employ­a­bil­i­ty and study skills to help you devel­op the wider skills need­ed in your cho­sen career? What’s more, our stu­dents can take advan­tage of state-of-the-art facil­i­ties which repli­cate the work place! These include our very own com­mer­cial train­ing restau­rant, stu­dios, labs, work­shops and more. 

Our Lec­tur­ers are experts in their fields, with a wealth of indus­try expe­ri­ence between them. They know bet­ter than any­one just what the demands of indus­try are, and they’ll help you devel­op team-build­ing and prob­lem-solv­ing skills to take with you in your future work­ing life. 

Most of our fur­ther edu­ca­tion cours­es include work expe­ri­ence, so you get a real insight into your cho­sen indus­try. Of course we also offer loads of appren­tice­ships, which com­bine learn­ing with earn­ing a wage.
