What we do

We are the Information, Advice and Guidance team, supporting all students in their search for Further Education, Higher Education, Full-time and Part-time studies. If you are still in school, you may see our advisors delivering presentations and workshops, and attending parents’ evenings and careers fairs in your school. We also arrange taster sessions, support with open events and are available to discuss your options either by phone, email, or in person in our Information Unit at the Old Mill Lane campus.

Please get in touch with our friendly advisors – you can contact the advisor who supports your school, or ring us on 01226 216 123. Alternatively, pop in to our Information Unit between 8.30am – 5.00pm, Monday to Friday, to talk to us.
