Independent Careers Guidance

What is Aspirations Anglia?

Aspirations Anglia has been developed in response to the Department for Education report Careers guidance and inspiration in schools (April 2014 & March 2015). This report emphasises the fact that schools are required to provide independent careers guidance for all Year 8 to 13 pupils. All pupils should have information to help them make informed choices about the education and career pathways available to help them reach their potential.

Our Aim

We work with schools to assist them in meeting these requirements by ensuring their pupils have access to valuable independent and impartial guidance to help them make education, training and occupational choices. We’ll help students progress on to manage their careers with the main emphasis of  concentrating on the best interests of the individual.

Our New Service

Our new service is offered as an independent division of West Suffolk College who have been providing information, advice and guidance to prospective and existing students for a number of years. This is a completely impartial, confidential and independent careers service delivered by a team of dedicated professional advisors who have over 25 years of experience in working within the education sector.

Our service has achieved Matrix Standard accreditation since 2004, having been reassessed in May 2015. This means that our provision has consistently met the International standards and benchmarking of best practice for organisations in providing a high quality Information, Advice and Guidance service. Through this, we help to support individuals in their choice of career, learning, work and life goals as well as providing careers guidance, support for learning and assist in reducing barriers to opportunities.
