Information, Advice & Guidance is key to students success whether they choose to leave us at 16, 18 or as young adults.
Two key documents used in College are used in the IAG programme to assist students in making informed choices:
Helen Ward is available at the Casterton campus and Ryan Parkinson at Oakham.
Helen works with students from years 9-11, and Ryan with students at Post-16 who might need Advice or Guidance with Careers, including Choosing options, A level packages, Job seeking including Apprenticeships and Further & Higher Education choices.
Helen’s drop in sessions for students are run every Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime in the Careers library and students can also access one-to-one support through a referral made by their Personal Tutor.
Ryan is available every Tuesday afternoon from 12.15pm in the Teenage Services room at Rutland County College. Students can self refer through Student Services.
