You will be treated like an adult and an individual, which will help you become more independent and better prepared for your next steps after college, whether that is to further study or a job.
You can get involved in a range of activities, form volunteering and social action projects to work placements and project-based learning.
There is so much more to experience at Northumberland College than studying! Get involved in national social action projects and raise money for our local charities and communities, join our various clubs and societies or volunteer at major events such as the Tall Ships.
Taking part in work experience or an industry placement will give you the edge in the job market and ensure you develop the skills, knowledge and experience that employers love! It also shows you are motivated and keen to develop yourself and will give you an exciting insight into a future career.
Our exciting project-based learning initiative is designed to bring the classroom and the world of work closer together. You will work with employers and industry experts and produce innovative ideas and solutions to real world issues and scenarios.
