Progression is the route you plan to take through education and into employment. At Nescot we encourage our students to think ahead, so that they can choose the right courses to fit them and their future. We also use an innovative online platform called Start, which is aimed at helping our students to explore future career and study options and to develop their employability.
Our careers advisors visit every tutorial group at the beginning of the spring term to speak to students about planning their next steps, so that they are as prepared as possible. Students who want to move to the next level of their subject are made a conditional offer, based on entry requirements and a reference. Interviews are arranged for students thinking about studying a different subject at the college, and information and advice is offered to those who are undecided.
For students planning to study at university-level, we hold a series of workshops covering UCAS applications, personal statements and references at lunchtime on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the autumn term. We also hold an annual careers fair aimed at helping our students to plan ahead. This year the event is being held on March 24, 2020.
Nescot is keen to work with employers and non-profit organisations as a way of supporting the employability of our students. This includes inviting employers to events at Nescot, such as careers fairs, or to visit our students as a guest speaker. You can also tell us about programmes that your organisations runs for students. To find out more about working with us, please contact Sarah Suggitt or Sandra Cox by emailing email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
