Support in Schools & Colleges

Schools and colleges in Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, St. Helens, Sefton and Wirral have Connexions Personal Advisers who work closely with them. Our Personal Advisers are professionally qualified, friendly and with a real interest in helping young people make the most of the available opportunities.
