There are those students who know exactly what they’d like to do after leaving Manor College. For others, deciding what to do next can be a difficult decision. We will support you in making that all-important decision and give you the guidance you need to succeed. Your decisions about your future will be supported by your tutor, the Head of Sixth Form and a Careers Adviser who is on hand in the Manor College base.
At Manor College, we will do everything in our power to ensure that your entry to higher education is facilitated. We hold regular UCAS workshops for students to get support with their personal statements and university applications. We organise presentations from, and visits to, universities to ensure our students are well informed and confident about their choice educational institution. There will be a visit to the UCAS fair, where all the major universities in the country will be represented, and there are presentations for students and parents on student finance and practical elements of “surviving university”.
Go on to an Apprenticeship
If you choose to go on to an Apprenticeship, you will get the chance to learn hands-on skills, earn money and gain qualifications such as an NVQ, Functional Skills and a technical certificate. We will also support you if you choose to pursue a Degree Level Apprenticeship, where an employer will sponsor you through university. We can give you guidance about which business sector best suits your skills and help you find the right apprenticeship for you, as well offering guidance and support with your applications. There are visits to the National Apprenticeships Fair, presentations on how to get an apprenticeship and visits from local employers such as Rolls Royce.
Immediate full time employment
If you’re hoping to go straight into full-time employment after Manor College, we will help you tailor your skills and guide you in the right direction to finding a job you’ll love. Manor College offers a number of workshops where students can build and improve their CVs, practise their interview skills and get help and advice when completing job applications.
