What is Connexions?

Connexions offers independent careers information, advice and guidance to young people aged 13-19, or up to 25 for young people with a learning difficulty or disability.

There are 2 teams of qualified careers advisers:


Schools and Colleges Team

This team works in schools and colleges to help young people make choices about what they want to do when they leave school or college. This includes:
  • Work in schools, including face to face careers guidance interviews and group work with Year 11, but also work with some young people in Years 9 and 10. Every school has an assigned careers adviser
  • Additional support to young people with disabilities by attending their 14+ reviews in year 9 (where they have a Statement of Special Educational Need), and help to make sure that they make a successful transition to post 16 education, employment or training

Your careers advisers per school are:

NEET Intervention Team

This team works with young people aged 16+ who need to support to find training, education, or employment. Our main base is at Redcar Youth Centre on Coatham Road and our Connexions Drop In is open from 1pm-4pm, Monday to Friday, but we can see you at other times by appointment just give us a call on 01642 490870 to arrange it.

We can also see you at places that might be closer to where you live: Ormesby, South Bank, Grangetown, Guisborough and Brotton libraries; Eston Job Centre, Loftus Co-Op, Skelton De Brus Centre and Doorways in Saltburn. Its better to make an appointment so theres no hanging around and waiting. Call us on 01642 490870.

Our professionally trained advisers cover the whole of Redcar and Cleveland: Jane and Vicky cover the east of the borough, Sarah and Wendy the central area, and Craig, Barbara and Sharon the west.

We've got a facebook page and we regularly circulate opportunities such as training or apprenticeships as well as details of any events that we are involved in. Just like us at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Connexions-Redcar-Cleveland/189365004463406

If you want to be included in receiving emails of our up to date apprenticeships please let us know connexions@redcar-cleveland.gov.uk


Connexions also manages the ELITE Project, aimed at supporting young people to find training, education, or employment. Flyer attached for more information.


What is Raising the Participation Age (RPA)?

It is the Governments policy that by 2013, all young people will be expected to stay in some form of learning until they are 17. This will increase to age 18 by 2015.

This means that young people that started in Year 7 in September 2008 or after will need to remain in learning until they are 17. Young people that started Year 7 in September 2009 or after will need to remain in learning until they are 18.
