St Helens College recognises the value of working in collaboration with schools, careers advisers, parents/carers and students in order to promote choice and opportunities.

Throughout the year, St Helens College's School Liaison Team work closely with high schools, sixth forms and colleges across the Northwest region. This is to provide information, advice and guidance on the progression options available for students, including traineeships, apprenticeships, A levels, technical and professional qualifications, and higher education.

This helps students to make the most informed choice about their progression and future education.

We are available to visit schools throughout the academic year to cover events such as careers fairs, options evenings, workshops and assembly presentations. We also assist many schools with mock interview sessions to help prepare Year 11 students for the world of employment or further education.

College Taster Sessions and Tours

We can help to coordinate fun taster sessions and tours, which are both great for allowing students to try out courses and view the College facilities. The timings can be flexible and can be done on an individual or group basis.

School Liaison Testimonials

“Over the years I have liaised closely with Lisa and team at St Helens College to ensure our students have an awareness of all post 16 options available to them and are able to make informed decisions about their future. The team have always been extremely helpful, professional and accommodating in response to any requests (generic and bespoke). For example, they have attended Careers Conventions, Parents Evenings, presented Assemblies, delivered careers lessons to our students and hosted College Taster Days. St Helens School Liaison Team provide an excellent, reliable and friendly service to schools and individual students alike.”

“I work closely with the School Liaison Team at St Helens College and greatly appreciate all their effort and support in ensuring the students have a successful transition into post-16 learning. The team have worked tirelessly to provide students with everything that is asked of them - information, bespoke sessions with tutors for those students requiring additional support, workshops and both small and larger year group visits. The team have always been on hand to represent St Helens College at Parents Evenings, Options Evenings, Assemblies and Careers Fairs. I am really keen to develop these links further in the future to ensure that all our students are given the opportunity to discover the progression route which is right for them.”
