options after xaverian college

Our Careers Team ran an excellent event for parents about progression after college and answered questions such as:

  • When do you need to apply to uni?
  • When are uni Open Days?
  • How does student finance work?

Apprenticeships are now available up to degree level and beyond. An apprenticeship is a job with training, meaning you can earn money whilst you gain a nationally recognised qualification. 

What are the benefits?

  • Excellent progression opportunities (further study or promotion)
  • Increased future earning potential – apprentices enjoy marked salary increases on
    finishing their training
