The Advantage brochureWhat’s in it for me?

We all know that life in the 21st Century is very competitive. Advantage is designed to give you the opportunity to access events, workshops, guest speakers and training sessions to equip you with the necessary skills and mind-set that will give you the advantage to progress and achieve your aspirations, whatever they may be.


Who can attend?

All students full, part time, Higher Education, apprentices of any age can access any session or support within the Advantage.


How will it work?

There are 4 Advantage packages: Get that Job, Going to University, Business Start-Up and Life Essentials. Each package offers a range of different and engaging skills development sessions. After completing the Soft Skills assessment, discuss with your Personal Tutor what your ambitions are on completion of your course; select the sessions to develop the skills you need to give you an advantage in realising your ambitions.


How to book on to a session?

Advantage sessions can also take place outside your normal timetabled hours allowing you to be flexible in the days and times you attend.
