The careers provision at City College Peterborough involves collaboration between the curriculum tutors, teaching assistants, job coaches and other members of the team. Vocational tutors engage with local employers to deliver guest speaker session and the college host a dedicated careers week.
Our ethos is creating an environment where learners need to know, understand and be equipped with the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for the world of work and for those that have chosen continued educational progression and create opportunities relevant to their skills’ set. Action to support learners will be embraced at every level. As an organization, we will work with parents, employers, partners and stakeholders and the Board of Governors who will contribute to the best possible outcome for careers development and progression for all our learners in this cohort.
