Guidance Statement

Glasgow Colleges Regional Board (GCRB) is committed to offering free and impartial advice and guidance to enable you to have the best student and learning experience possible.  The role of Glasgow Colleges is to help you achieve this.

City of Glasgow, Glasgow Clyde and Glasgow Kelvin Colleges each provide impartial, ethical, learner centred advice and careers guidance services for college students and prospective learners to enable them to make informed decisions.  Each College can be contacted for advice and guidance and all enquiries are dealt with confidentially.

Advice Before You Apply

Remember - before you apply, help is freely available from one of our Careers Advisors here at the College, or you can also get some great advice from our partners at Skills Development Scotland (SDS). You can find your local SDS centre here or access their web service My World of Work for lots of useful information and resources.
