Careers Advice

Are you thinking about your future or worried about what to do after education? Well, you need not worry. Instead of wasting energy worrying, make sure you channel it into planning what you are going to do!  There is plenty of support and help available at Winstanley to help you discover what is right for you and to give you the information you need to shape your future. You will discuss these options individually with your personal tutor but in addition, we have Angela Gregory (Progression & Welfare Manager), Chris Jolliffe (Careers & Engagement Manager) and Julie Tindall (Careers Advisor) who you can find in Guidance who will be more than happy to help you look at different options and decide the best options for you.

After leaving college there are four main options:
  • Attending a university
  • Starting an apprenticeship or sponsored degree programme
  • Seeking employment
  • Take a gap year

During the year we have a number of visiting speakers, Careers & Apprenticeship event and the HE event to help you with your decision making.

All students have access to one-to-one careers advice. To organise this please contact:
