St Helens College is excited to unveil its new school leaver prospectus for the 2019 academic year.

The ‘Connecting Classroom to Career’ campaign promotes St Helens College’s diverse provision, facilities, experienced teaching staff and strong employer links and highlight, how combined, these key elements contribute to maximising students’ potential to enable them to achieve their career aspirations.

At the heart of the campaign, are nine successful students and alumni that through hard work and dedicated support, are on the road to, or have already achieved their ultimate career. Some have secured positions within healthcare or have progressed on to university, while others are leading the way in the growing Visitor Economy.

A Level Academy Ambassador, Ellie, who has progressed on to Edge Hill University, has big plans for her future, saying, “The A Level Academy was a place where I was able to challenge myself, be independent and explore my capabilities.”

Sophie, now a Teaching Assistant for Fox Wood School, completed her level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education (Early Years Educator) at St Helens College. She says, “Completing a range of placements as part of my course prepared me for my career. I now work with children with special educational needs and I love it!”

The Connecting Classroom to Career Ambassadors are true advocates of their chosen industries, passionate about sharing their experiences with young people and are keen to demonstrate how the skills and experience they have developed within the classroom at St Helens College are connected to their chosen career.

Ash, has secured an innovative engineering design apprenticeship with CAL International after completing his level 3 Extended Diploma in Mechanical Engineering. He says, “The supportive tutors with their industry links, helped me to secure my apprenticeship. As part of my role, I research and develop new ideas and improve existing designs for high profile companies such as Bentley and NeedleSmart.”

The new school leaver prospectus is designed to inspire, excite and motivate prospective students. Containing full-time vocational courses, A levels, Apprenticeships and much more, it will be distributed to schools across the Northwest in the upcoming weeks in preparation for the next academic year.
