At Barnsley College we offer opportunities for every student to learn about their career pathway and develop key employability and career management skills.

Every student can expect:

  • Excellent course advice and guidance on entry which ensures that the course they have chosen is right for them and helps them to progress towards their career goals
  • Opportunities to learn about the world of work and labour market information during their course
  • The chance to meet employers and employees, visit workplaces and experience the world of work
  • Impartial information and guidance on progression and taking the next steps in their career journey
  • Bespoke one-to-one guidance for all students who need support with their career planning
  • Opportunities to develop enterprise, employability and entrepreneurial skills
  • Support with applications for university, apprenticeship and job opportunities
  • We continue to support after students have completed their course if needed

If you are seeking to develop yourself through learning or training, but you are not sure which route to take, a guidance interview will enable you to discuss options and opportunities available. There is also advice on progression onto Higher Education and guidance through the UCAS application process. You will be encouraged to reflect on your existing skills and qualifications and then achieve more through further training or a career change. Careers guidance appointments will help you to aim for realistic and achievable plans.

The service we offer is confidential, impartial, free and available to existing, prospective and former Barnsley College students. To book your one to one appointment please contact a Careers Advisor on 01226 216 182 or email:
