The Schools and Colleges Team works with sixth forms and further education colleges, delivering meaningful, informative, relevant and timely activities to young people at a time when they are making important decisions about their future.
Our activities are linked to our progression framework and can be mapped to institution career strategies, meeting key targets in the Gatsby Benchmarks.
Working with students throughout their post 16 education, our activities are designed to inform and support young people to develop the skills, emotional intelligence and creativity needed to thrive in a constantly changing world, making them career ready for jobs in the 4th industrial revolution.
Working predominantly with students from a widening participation background, our post 16 offer has sustained engagement opportunities, to build skills and knowledge, support attainment and ensure your students achieve their full potential in their studies in school or college, as well as university.
We encourage schools and colleges to become a partner to discuss long term engagement plans to meet your careers strategy. Research suggests that multiple interventions are more effective in helping students make confident, informed decisions about their future.
Careers Manager, South Essex College
UEL have worked in partnership with South Essex College’s Careers Team, supporting students to explore their next steps into HE, UCAS Application Process and Personal Statement Writing. The UEL team proved knowledgeable in the content presented to students, along with supporting SEC’s Careers Team. It is clear that UEL have a dedicated team in supporting students and wanting to build strong working relationships with colleges and schools. I look forward to working with UEL in the future.
