About Us

 

 

 

Connexions Sandwell provides statutory careers guidance to young people who live or are educated in the Sandwell area. *

We work with young people aged from 13-19 years. If a young person has Special Educational Needs (SEND) then we can support them until they are 25.

The service is free and impartial.

We are committed to providing young people with high quality, independent, support  to make them aware of all their options to enable them to take up employment, an apprenticeship or further learning and training opportunities to fulfil their potential. 

We will continue to grow our business with honesty and integrity to guide our everyday actions.

The service is delivered by highly qualified Personal Advisers and mentors who are experienced in working with young people.

We give impartial information, advice and guidance that helps young people to make informed decisions about their future.

We work with young people who:

  • Need help in finding suitable education, training or employment 
  • Have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
  • Need extra support. This includes young parents, young carers, young offenders and Children in Care (CIC)
  • Are elective Home Educated,(but please contact Attendance & Prosecution first).
  • Attend Meadows Sports College, Westminster School, Brades Lodge and Short Stay Schools (Pupil Referral Units) 

The range and depth of the support we give depends on need. It can include:
