Oldham College has an on-site Job Shop offering career skills advice for all students – and helping to link them with the right employers, careers or apprenticeship opportunities. 

This is our one stop place for career skills advice with live vacancies for apprenticeships and other opportunities in Oldham and Greater Manchester all year round offering advice and connections to get young people’s careers on the move. 

We know that 60 per cent of employers value apprentices’ skills over those of graduates – and we’re here to help with an efficient and cost-effective service that helps you to fill your vacancies.

We also know that 82 per cent of employers take on apprentices to build the skills capacity within their businesses.

We can help you to reach our student community during the academic year with your recruitment campaigns, vacancies, competitions or events.  

And we can help make sure that the students you’re targeting have the right skills, capabilities and maturity to deliver the outputs you need to be competitive and sustainable.

We do this by giving students support and guidance all the way.

Each gets an assessor who links in with their employers and tutors to make sure their work complements their study, is gathering evidence of their competence, and accessing the lessons they need to achieve their qualifications.

We have also specialist expertise in the following subject courses as a part of a larger learning programme:

  • Business & Professional
  • Finance & Law 
  • Construction & Manufacturing
  • Customer Service
  • Design & Media 
  • Digital Technologies
  • Early Years, Health & Social Care
  • Hair, Beauty & Barbering
  • Green-keeping, Sports-turf, Horticulture & Landscape
