School Liaison

Welcome to School Liaison

Suffolk New College is Ipswich’s leading Further Education provider, offering vocational courses to more than 2,500 young people, taught in industry-standard facilities by tutors with years of experience.

The College enjoys strong links with commerce, a mutually-beneficial association which helps mould the structure and content of courses to help produce hungry, talented young people who fully understand the requirements of potential employers.

In each of the last four years, more than 93% of students who successfully completed a course at Suffolk New College went into work or continued to study in further or higher education.

The College has a dedicated Schools Liaison who works in partnership with schools, sixth forms and academies to raise awareness of vocational courses and apprenticeships and promote choice among young people contemplating their next steps.

The College established the role of Schools Liaison three years ago and has since worked with more than 25 Suffolk schools, meeting hundreds of pupils from year 7 to 11 and supporting them to make an informed choice about their future and education.

We are available to visit schools all year round, including careers fairs, assemblies, drop-in surgeries and parents’ evenings. We can also provide one-to-one or group work sessions, mock interviews, CV workshops and can provide real-time application reporting.

This resource outlines the services we provide in helping pupils make the transition into further education.
