Beyond Alton College

Whether students are planning on staying in education, starting an apprenticeship or going on to start a new job, we are here to help them with advice and guidance.

We offer career and higher education advice throughout your son or daughter's time with us. Their tutor and teachers help ensure that they are thinking about the right things at the right time.

The Student Hub contains a careers library, with a wide variety of information on universities, jobs, training and gap year opportunities. When students need individual professional advice they can drop in to see the Careers Adviser.

Throughout the year, there are workshops and clinics which will help students  to reach the route they want to take.

Some of these include;

  • CV Writing
  • Applying to University
  • Funding and Finance evenings
  • UCAS Clinics
  • Careers consultations

Two booklets for your information:
