The government requires Ealing Council Connexions Service to support all young people aged 16- 18 to make informed choices about education, training and employment.
Our experienced advisers are based in schools and youth centres (Ealing Westside). They can give you information, advice and guidance to help you choose the right course, apprenticeship, training or employment option for you.
Advisers can also help you access benefit schemes. Also, if you are: not at school, new to Ealing, a traveller, or at risk of becoming unemployed, then they can put you in touch with people who offer more specialist support services.
Our Promise to Young People
If you are 13-19 years old, or up to 25 years old if you have a disability or learning difficulty, then you can talk to an Ealing Connexions adviser to help you plan and prepare for your future.
In order for us to provide support to those young people that most need it, we need to check what all young people aged 16 and over (who live in Ealing) are doing, or planning to do, in terms of education, training and employment. We find out what young people are doing in a variety of ways e.g. through schools and colleges but sometimes we phone, email and text young people or even visit them at home.
Most young people will stay on in 6th form or go to college. However some won't have the offer of a place, or just need some extra support in applying for college, an apprenticeship or a job. It would be really helpful if you let us know your up to date plans as this enables us to target our resources at the people that need it most.
If you need support in different areas of your life our advisers can help you talk to other professionals who provide counselling and support with issues affecting your life such as: health, benefits, housing, drug or alcohol misuse, relationships and teenage pregnancy.
