Education Liaison

Deciding what to study and learning what options are available can be really confusing for young people. Our Education Liaison activities make the choice a lot easier for High School pupils and College students.


We are very proud at Sefton Sixth Form College of our specialist programme of activities designed to equip young people, teachers and advisers with relevant and up-to-date careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) on both Further Education and Higher Education opportunities.

Our work with schools and colleges is designed to assist careers advisors and help students and their key influencers navigate their way through the, sometimes challenging, education landscape. Our activities are delivered at Sefton Sixth Form College, in schools/colleges, or virtually.

They are designed to be interactive and enjoyable with lots of opportunities to meet with current students and academic staff. We hope you find this information useful in your role and our team look forward to working with you and your students in the coming year.


We have a number of talks, workshops and presentations that we can deliver in your school or college, or virtually. Enquire about an activity.
