Need Help Applying for a course?
Funding Support for Students
Making the right career decision is important and at South West College the Careers Officers will assist you in choosing the right course and helping you plan your next step, be it entry into higher education or employment.
We offer individual advice about your specific career options and next steps.
We can talk to you about university, apprenticeships, other training routes and how to apply (including UCAS), as well as giving you access to online databases.
We help you learn transferrable and industry-specific skills for the workplace, as well as how to create job applications that will make you stand out.
We run workshops, events, one-to-one meetings, through your course or by connecting with you directly.
Each year we run Higher Education fairs, as well as other events throughout the year supported by employers, universities, and other organisations. We’ll also keep you up to date with open events at local universities.
We advise teaching staff on developing careers education and planning activities in their courses to help enhance employability and confidence with career planning.
