Sheiling College Work Experience Coordinator

My name is Claire, and I am the Work Experience Coordinator at the college. I support each of our young people throughout their journey with us. At The Sheiling Ringwood we work closely with several professional bodies and organisations, but also, as a staff team, we work very closely to ensure the best for each student and their individual needs. Other key staff you may hear mentioned in relation to your son or daughter's work experience and careers pathway are the Leisure and Community Lead as well as our Transitions Officer. Another important advisor available to you and your young person is our Independent Careers Advisor.


Independent Careers Advisor

My name is Louise, and I am the Independent Careers Adviser at the college. I support young people in many schools and colleges within the local area to explore the future options available to them.   

How will I support your young person?  

I will work closely with the work experience co-ordinator to arrange 1:1 career appointments, classroom visits and/or group sessions to explore the things they can do once they leave college.   

These could include:  

  • Apprenticeships 

  • Traineeships 

  • Supported Internships 

  • College 

  • Jobs 

  • Volunteering 

  • Activities  

  • Help or support that may be needed as an adult 

I will also help them to think about the following: what they would like to do as an adult, what they are good at and what they enjoy, work experience and how to apply for a job or course.  

How will I support you as parents/carers? 

I can provide you with information on  

  • Educational provisions, training providers, adult day placements and local employers 

  • The funding and application process 

  • Additional support services  

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like further information. I am best contacted by email in the first instance, and I will then contact you back to arrange a telephone discussion. 

I look forward to working with you.  

Kind Regards,  
Louise Evenden  

Independent Careers Adviser  

Please note my working days: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
