Advice Days

****IMPORTANT UPDATE for Careers Advice Sessions at Colchester Campus on 24th September****

As term has started, there are now very limited spaces available to start a full-time course this September, and most full-time courses are closed to new applicants. Therefore at this late stage we are only able to offer appointments in areas where stated, although there is no guarantee that this will result in a place on a course.

For Adult Learners over 18, we are still accepting applications for some part-time and short courses, as well as professional qualifications and degree level programmes. Start dates and application details are listed on each individual course page.

If you are a current Year 11 student or next of kin looking for information about open events for starting with us in September 2021 please click here – Register for updates for our October Open Events.

Remaining Advice Sessions

Careers Advice Sessions at Colchester campus

We currently have some Careers Advice Sessions available at our Colchester campus on Tuesday 22nd and Thursday 24th September.

On the day you will need to bring evidence of your GCSE results with you.

Please ensure that you arrive 10-15 minutes before the start of your scheduled appointment in order to sign in.

Face coverings are required when you are inside any building on campus.

If you are exempt from wearing a face covering please bring proof of your exemption.

Due to the circumstances surrounding this years event, if you arrive late we are unable to allow appointments to overrun and you will only be able to discuss your options for the remainder of your allotted time.

If you turn up after your appointment was scheduled to finish or miss your appointment, then you will have to book a new appointment, which may not be on the same day depending on demand.

Appointments are limited this year. If you are unable to attend your appointment please let us know by contacting so that we can reschedule or cancel your appointment and allow another learner to book onto it.
