We offer you a wide range of careers and employability activities, throughout the year, to prepare you for life beyond LSFC. These include:

  • A Year 12 Careers Day, involving over 30 universities, plus employers, apprenticeship providers and voluntary organisations.
  • Apprenticeship and Volunteering Fairs.
  • A Progression and Higher Education evening for parents and carers.
  • University Open Day visits and visits from a variety of universities, such as the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, Oxford and Cambridge universities, amongst others.
  • World of Work networking events with local employers.
  • Employability skills workshops.
  • Our High Achievers Programme for aspiring medics, lawyers, and other health professionals.

LSFC helps students in your career planning through:

  • A programme of careers sessions, delivered in tutorial sessions throughout Years 12 and 13. These outline all the options available after college, sources of information, research skills and application skills. They include specific lessons to support you in career related activities at important points e.g. writing university personal statements in Year 12, and submitting applications and attending interviews in Year 13.
  • Access to 1:1 careers interviews with qualified careers advisers in college. You can make an appointment by contacting the team directly.

If you’re a student and want to apply for a university course that requires particular vocational experience prior to application, we can help arrange work shadowing placements in the college holidays. This allows you to gain important employment experience, as well as first-hand knowledge of the specific career and work place your studies may lead to. If you’re applying for a vocational course, you’ll be involved in work-related activity as part of your programme.
