LIFE BEYOND WELLINGTON PROGRAMME

Our exciting new programme consists of fun and inspiring sessions on both life skills as well as more career specific sessions. This programme is more relevant than ever, as it’s a programme that aims to equip students with the skills and understanding about the ‘real’ world so they can shape what they do at College with an eye on their life beyond their time at Wellington. For young OWs the sessions are insightful and inspirational as they make their transition into the working world and beyond.
