Choices At St Helens CollegeYoung people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) are being urged to 'make today matter' with a Choices course at St Helens College.

Choices at St Helens College boasts an impressive 80% success rate with students using the free short course as a platform into education, employment or training.

The innovative programme launched to combat youth unemployment hopes to inspire and motivate those aged between 16 to 18 through a taster subject of their choice, from hairdressing and animal management to engineering and sport.

The six week programme has provided former students with the opportunity to enrol onto full-time college courses, apprenticeships, traineeships and employment.

Shaun Moss, Curriculum Manager for Preparation for Education and Employment at St Helens College said, "Choices has proved a huge success for the College and has helped to reduce the number of NEET young people in the borough. The course provides a whole host of opportunities for young people from all types of different backgrounds. The College welcomes students from across the region to maximise their full-potential through the tailor made programme."

The three-day course which starts on Monday 29 April provides students with a £25-per-week learning allowance (subject to full attendance), free bus pass and breakfast.
