Ad­vice on of­fer to start jour­ney in col­lege life

Gloucestershire Echo - - GCSE RESULTS SPECIAL -

SOUTH Glouces­ter­shire and Stroud Col­lege is of­fer­ing free In­for­ma­tion, Ad­vice and Guid­ance ses­sions to stu­dents look­ing for as­sis­tance with their education and ca­reer paths.

The Never Too Late ses­sions have been run­ning for a num­ber of years, help­ing more than 7,000 late ap­pli­cants find a course of study that suits their needs.

Specif­i­cally cre­ated to help those in need of ad­vice be­fore de­cid­ing what to study this Septem­ber, this im­par­tial ser­vice – which is up and run­ning – pro­vides as­sis­tance on an in­di­vid­ual ba­sis with one of the col­lege’s pro­fes­sional ad­vis­ers.

Po­ten­tial learn­ers will re­ceive ad­vice on all as­pects of stu­dent life, in­clud­ing course choice and fees, en­try re­quire­ments, pro­gres­sion routes and ca­reers.

All ad­vice and guid­ance on of­fer is avail­able not only to prospec­tive stu­dents aged 16-19, but also adults con­sid­er­ing their next ca­reer step or who wish to un­der­take learn­ing in their leisure time.

SGS, has four main cam­puses – Stroud, Fil­ton, WISE (Stoke Gif­ford) and Berke­ley Green – as well as many lo­cal com­mu­nity venues.

We also have venues in the cen­tre of Bris­tol, at the West of Eng­land Academy of Art and at the Bris­tol Zoo & Gar­dens.

We wel­come around 15,500 full-time and part-time stu­dents of all ages ev­ery year.

Our cam­puses are based in state-ofthe-art build­ings in great lo­ca­tions – Fil­ton and WISE are within easy reach

of the cen­tre of Bris­tol, while our Stroud cam­pus is based in the beau­ti­ful Five Val­leys in Glouces­ter­shire.

We of­fer a vast range of cour­ses in an even wider range of sub­jects – from busi­ness to sport, and from beauty to me­dia – so what­ever you want to study, there’s bound to be some­thing for you.

What’s more, SGS has an ex­cel­lent rep­u­ta­tion for de­liv­er­ing work-based pro­grammes such as ap­pren­tice­ships, higher ap­pren­tice­ships and pro­fes­sional train­ing.

So if you are af­ter a prac­ti­cal course that will teach you the skills you need for your cho­sen ca­reer, you have come to the right place.

Our ex­pe­ri­enced and pas­sion­ate staff work hard to help our stu­dents achieve their per­sonal chal­lenges and ca­reer goals.

We’re proud of SGS, and com­mit­ted to mak­ing the new col­lege the best it can be.

We are work­ing hard to achieve out­stand­ing sta­tus af­ter been clas­si­fied as good in our in­spec­tion last year.

A strong part­ner­ship with the Univer­sity of Glouces­ter­shire means ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents who choose to go on to higher education.

The col­lege is still re­cruit­ing for cour­ses start­ing this Septem­ber with avail­abil­ity in the fol­low­ing course ar­eas at the Stroud cam­pus:
