Independent CEIAG and Provider Access Statement

As part of the Careers Programme the College will provide students with access to independent and employer-led CEIAG.

Throughout the programme each year there will be at least two encounters for this activity. To discuss these opportunities providers should contact the Careers Leads, as listed on the College’s website.

Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature with the College. Literature should be addressed to the Head of Careers Education.
