What is Routes to Employment?

Routes to Employment (formerly 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

NEET Intervention Team

This team works with young people aged 16+ who need to support to find training, education, or employment.

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

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.
