More than 6000 people turned out for the Mission Possible Careers Show in Peterborough last month. The event was held at the East of England Arena and Events Centre, with New College Stamford making their mark with around 15 stands from a range of specialist subject areas.

The annual Careers Show is the East of England’s largest skills event, which attracts thousands of visitors each year, both locally and beyond.

Both staff and students welcomed prospective students in their masses, giving them an insight into college life and the range of courses and exciting opportunities available to support their progression.

There was plenty to explore at the Careers Show, from handling reptiles at the Animal Care stand, to a complimentary hair treatment from our Hairdressing students.

Not only did prospective students get the chance to gain an insight into the range of courses offered at New College Stamford, but freebies were plentiful, especially our very own ice cream van offering free ice cream with a variety of delicious toppings. Not to mention our famous yellow sunglasses which were once again a hit for all!


If you missed the event, do not worry! You can still find all of the information you need on our website.

With over 32 subject areas from Entry to University level there is something for everyone at New College Stamford. If you’d like to chat about your career options call our Advice and Guidance team on 01780 484311 or email – we are happy to help.
