Career Advice

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

  • Bespoke pathway-based careers education and information which is delivered in every curriculum area
  • 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

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.

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 216 732 or email: jobshop@barnsley.ac.uk
