Our Support


Are you in school or a school leaver? Life after year 11 is an exciting time. You get to choose what you want to study, learn all about your passion and meet new people. But, you could still be unsure on your next steps, despite having careers interviews at school and taking part in a lot of careers-related activities. While your friends might know what they want to do next, many young people feel the same as you right now. That’s why our dedicated School Liaison Team is here to help you – no matter how big or small you think your questions may be. They provide services, as well as advice and guidance on the likes of:

  • Life after year 11-13
  • CEIAG (Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance)
  • Course information
  • Application forms
  • Careers
  • Careers guidance
  • College interviews
  • Mock interviews
  • Employability skills
  • Extra college opportunities
  • University and higher education

Support for Schools

Our School Liaison Service offers a wide range of opportunities to support schools with careers and progression advice (in line with new government legislation around schools’ requirements to give impartial and unbiased information, advice and guidance). 

Every school is different, and 100% of the schools we’ve worked with have agreed our team create a personal and tailored service, with most saying ‘First-hand insight into South Tyneside College courses’ and ‘Committed support for pupils across a range of techniques’ were the most effective.

Our School Liaison Service Team offers:

  • One-to-one independent advice and guidance
  • Assemblies, workshops, career carousels, parent events, tasters and employability skills
  • Bespoke activities specific to year groups
  • Online support including podcasts, live Q & As, how-to videos, interviews with industry experts and LiveChat
  • Information on extra opportunities at college, including how to apply for apprenticeships
  • Progression opportunities


At STC, we also offer a wide range of higher education courses. To help your Sixth Form students choose the correct next step, our School Liaison Service offers support and guidance with:

  • Course information sessions (which can be a presentation, workshop or whatever suits your students best).
  • UCAS applications.
  • Funding and financial advice.
  • Progression opportunities.
