Traded Services

Connexions Sandwell Traded Services

All educational establishments have a statutory responsibility to give their students access to independent, impartial careers information, advice and guidance.

Connexions Sandwell offers a traded service to support this.

This is open to establishments both inside and outside the Sandwell area.

We provide high quality careers information, advice and guidance built around The Gatsby Benchmarks.

This enables establishments to:

  • Fully meet their statutory commitments in this area
  • Help maximise the number of positive destinations for students
  • Contribute towards the Gatsby ‘Good Careers Guidance’ benchmarks
