We are celebrating Colleges Week!
We have signed up with hundreds of other colleges across the country to support the National Colleges Week campaign.
I chose my apprenticeship as I felt like it was a good opportunity with an amazing business and it allowed me to grow and strengthen my skills while doing a qualification. My qualification is based all in the workplace but the support and help I get from my assessor, Sarah, and Jonathan, my training co-ordinator, is great. They are easy to contact and flexible with my workload. The course allows you to be very independent and to complete the work in your own time.
At Gloucestershire College we know that everyone has different strengths, interests and ambitions.
You have the freedom and flexibility to choose what extra activities you want to do on top of your course to make the most out of your time at college.
Whether you have a dream career in mind; want to continue studying on your journey to employment; or simply want to explore your options, our student development programme has a number of ways to help you get to where you want to go.
Our team of Learning Mentors and Employment Coaches can help you map your route to a career and provide you with the right opportunities to get there.
That can include:
I applied to GC to study Motor Vehicle to learn about cars and how to fix or diagnose problems with them, as it’s something I find interesting. I enjoy the help I get in lessons and being allowed to use the computers freely to do my work. Hopefully after my course I will be able to do an apprenticeship at Toyota or Ford with the skills I learnt. I would recommend anyone to apply to GC.
Employer contact is key to providing work experience opportunities all year round – not just for one week. And we have hundreds of business connections at GC to make that happen.
If you know exactly what you want to do we can connect you with businesses in that industry to give you the platform to kick-start your reputation and build contacts for the future.
If you’re not quite sure what you want to do yet we can provide you with opportunities to experience all kinds of industries to help you discover the kind of work you’d like to do.
