What's a Guidance Session?

It is a chance to discuss the courses and subject combinations that you would like to study.A Guidance Session usually lasts about 30 to 40 minutes.

The Guidance Advisor will talk to you about the level of study that will suit you, based on your predicted GCSE grades.

The session will encourage you to think about how the choices you make now may affect future plans, including Higher Education.

You can also talk about any worries or concerns you may have about coming to college.

A Guidance Session is not a Careers Interview

You will not normally be made an offer of a college place during a Guidance Session. You will usually be invited to attend a College Interview at a later date.

The Guidance Advisor will not tell you what you should do. They will advise you and answer questions to help you make a decision

You can bring your parents or carers if you wish

It may be useful to have a Careers Interview before you come particularly if you are really undecided about your future.

All our Guidance Advisors are members of Student Services.
