City College Plymouth collaborates with schools in Plymouth and East Cornwall to ensure students select the most suitable courses for their career aspirations.

Our offer

We pride ourselves on delivering a range of informal and informative sessions to students from Year 7 through to Year 13. Regardless of the topic, all presentations are mindful of the various options available to young people, and whilst we will promote the College’s post-16 options where appropriate during our presentations, it is never to the exclusion of other pathways.

Alternatives to University – this presentation focuses on the different ways to access university-level study.

Apprenticeships – whether you are looking to book a school assembly to fit in with National Apprenticeship Week, or would like to offer your students a talk or interactive workshop, we can help.

Employer Expectations – this talk covers everything from first impressions, to the importance of a clean social media presence and can be especially valuable before they embark on their work experience.

General – this presentation will provide a broad overview of what the College can offer young people.

T Levels – find out more about the next level qualification. Your Year 11s will have the opportunity to be among the first cohort to apply for T Levels. They combine work experience with classroom learning so students complete their studies with both the knowledge and practical skills required by their chosen sector.

We also provide bespoke workshops and can tailor presentations to your needs. Just let us know what you require.

The Sherford Skills Training Scheme Co-ordinator is based at City College Plymouth. With the primary objective of getting young people involved in building the new town through Apprenticeships, vocational NVQs, work experience and work placements, we are able to deliver assemblies about the construction careers involved in the development, with the option of a follow-up site tour for interested students.
