Careers Support

Careers hub logo

At Andover College we do everything we can to make sure that you have a plan of what you want to do once you leave. We will do everything we can to get you started. This may include going to university, starting an apprenticeship or going into full time employment. Our Careers guidance aims to expand the horizons of all students, of all ages, enabling you to make informed career decisions in order to progress towards high personal and professional achievements and a fulfilling future.

Our Careers Team are on hand to help you every step of the way.

1:1 telephone Career appointments are also available, and can be booked online . Log on to Moodle, from the Student Toolkit page, you will see the “Careers Hub” button – from there you can access the  Careers online booking system.

Please ensure you book using your Full Name and Phone Number.

If there is not a suitable timeslot available, please email Carol on Careers@sparsholt.ac.uk.

UCAS update

UCAS Clearing information for students  

If you have already submitted a UCAS application, but have not secured a place, you can add a choice by using UCAS Track.  There is a full guide, including a helpline linked here.
If you have not yet created an application, there is still time.

 We are still here to help.  Please contact careers@sparsholt.ac.uk  for any additional assistance.

Careers interviews are impartial, confidential and focused on your individual needs and aim to help you to clarify where you are currently at in the process, identify what you need to do next and talk you through how to go about it.

Our Careers Adviser is also the UCAS administrator and is available to support you through the UCAS process, including work on personal statements, and anything in general to do with higher education.

After you leave college, you can still access support from the Careers department. 

If you are applying to university after a Gap Year (or two!), we will still support you with your application. You will need an academic reference, and to secure this, you must link your application to the college. The application will ask if you are applying through an institution and will give you the options to type in the college ‘buzzword’.  This buzzword changes every year,  so please contact the careers department for the most recent one. 

Try to start the process as soon as possible to ensure that your application is completed on time. Our internal college deadline is Nov 15, 2021 for the 2022 application cycle.

To book an appointment or for further information, please contact us on careers@sparsholt.ac.uk
