Planning for Employment

At New College we would like to see all students prepared for employment, and many students choose to go directly into the world of work or further training once they have left college. Links to useful sites to support your career planning include:

What Our


“What an amazing 2 years it’s been, and in all honesty, I really don’t want to leave. I’ll be leaving lots of memories and friends behind as well as many great teachers… and most of all, the amount of support I have had over these 2 extremely short years. Can’t believe I’m leaving! Thank you once again for the support, and putting up with me for 2 years, it’s been great!”
