At QE, we are committed to helping all students to progress to exciting and meaningful Higher Education courses, jobs or apprenticeships. Guidance members of staff are able to give advice on career pathways and opportunities well beyond the sixth form.
Where to Find Help
Since the courses at the College are usually only for two years, you are expected to review your career aspirations regularly and to seek advice as necessary. The Group Tutor assists you in this process as part of the regular interview cycle.
All students receive first class careers and higher education guidance while at College and develop employability skills. There are planned programmes which include workshops, talks by visiting speakers, work experience opportunities and visits. The College has a team of Higher Education and Careers Advisers who provide advice and in-depth interviews for students. The College has much expertise in employment, apprenticeships and higher education applications.
We also have a Work Experience Co-ordinator who organises high-quality placements and links with employers.
We are very proud of our examination results and our record in enabling students to achieve their ambitions.
A large proportion of our students progress to higher education (mostly universities) on leaving College and this year over 700 students started degree courses at over 100 different universities in all parts of the country, including traditional and new universities. 188 students progressed to prestigious Russell Group universities, 13 going to Oxford and Cambridge. We are confident that we provide a first class service to our students.
A good number of students move on to competitive Higher Level Apprenticeships or take up employment in a range of highly-valued occupations.
You can be confident that, by studying at QE, we will help you to achieve your ambitions.
