Connecting Classroom to Career AmbassadorsSt Helens College has unveiled its brand new school leaver prospectus for the 2018 academic year.

The ‘Connecting Classroom to Career’ campaign promotes St Helens College’s diverse provision, facilities, experienced teaching staff and strong employer links and highlight, how combined, these key elements contribute to maximising students’ potential to enable them to achieve their career aspirations.

At the heart of the campaign, are nine successful students and alumni that through hard work and dedicated support, are on the road to, or have already achieved their ultimate career. Some have launched their own successful businesses, have secured positions within government or are leading the way in the growing Visitor Economy.

A Level Academy Ambassador, Shannon Heaton, who has progressed on to University of Manchester, has big plans for her future, saying, “Studying at the A Level Academy has developed my confidence, independence and academic ability. My passion for psychology is what drives me to want to become a qualified Psychologist.”

Cameron James Stephenson, now Managing Director of C.J.S Engineering, completed his level 3 Advanced Diploma in Engineering at St Helens College. He says, “The course had great links and the valuable work experience I gained with global engineering companies helped me to understand what was needed to succeed in the industry. I became equipped with the skills needed to launch my own business.”

The Connecting Classroom to Career Ambassadors are true advocates of their chosen industries, passionate about sharing their experiences with young people and are keen to demonstrate how the skills and experience they have developed within the classroom at St Helens College are connected to their chosen career.

Nathan Holland, has worked his way from IT, Web and Telecoms Apprentice to Civil Servant Apprentice with the Department for Work and Pensions.
