Parent & Guardian Careers Bulletin

The Careers Department is open daily from 8.30am to 4pm.To book an appointment, students should come in person to the Careers office in the LRC. The Department is run by friendly, highly experienced staff, offering expert advice, information and guidance relating to every aspect of progression from college. Students have access to our well-resourced office and we run events throughout the year to introduce students to the variety of opportunities available. We ensure every student makes the right choices for them. This includes providing information on universities, apprenticeships, school leaver programmes  and paid employment. Every student has access to work-related learning during their time at Woking College and have the chance to take part in work experience opportunities, workshops and have access to speakers from industry and commerce. We help with CV writing for part time and full time employment, mock job interviews, application checking and finding work, including advice on approaching employment agencies, using job sites and writing covering letters. A weekly careers bulletin is emailed to all students.
