The Schools Liaison Team exists to support school staff, leaners and their carers to find out about the options available to them when they are ready to begin the tertiary stage of their educational journey.
We offer a wide range of activities and services that can take place either on the College Campus or at school. These services are intended to assist learners to make well informed decisions and successful transitions, helping them to choose career opportunities that are right for them.
Our team can offer support with the full range of activities that are part of CEIAG requirements. By working together we can help you to achieve good careers provision.

Many of the activities listed above would also be part of this section of provision. For many years now we have been organising highly successful Subject Taster days (general, specialised and for G & T learners). Our unique programme for year 9 learners is the University Access Project (UAP). This has been running for 9 years now and currently involves 9 schools. The programme incorporates Careers Education, Subject taster classes at Halesowen College and ends with a visit to the University of Worcester. Other examples include:
All of our staff are highly experienced in their roles and will provide independent and impartial advice and guidance at all times. They will assist learners to choose the most appropriate pathway to enable them to work towards a successful but realistic career goal.
