Connexions is a careers service for young people

We can offer you advice and guidance on finding a job, training course or an apprenticeship in Leicester.

We're open Monday to Thursday 9am to 4.30pm and 9am to 4pm on Friday. Drop-in or call us on 0116 454 1770 for an appointment.

Who can we help?

You can see an adviser at our centre if you are:

  • Aged 16 to 19 (up to 25 for young people with learning difficulties or disabilities)
  • Living in Leicester city
  • Not in full-time work, education or training
  • Not happy with your training, job or course

What if I am still at school or college?

Your school or college are responsible for giving you careers advice. Ask them to put you in touch with an adviser who works in the school or college.

Before you see an adviser

Think about what questions you would like to ask and what you want to find out. It doesn't matter if you don't know what you want to do; we can help you to decide. Bring details of any grades you have. If you don't have any qualifications we can still help you. If you have a CV, try to bring a copy with you. If not, we can help you create one.

Employ Me project

EmployMe is a scheme for people aged 16 to 24, funded by the European Social Fund.

Looking for a course

We can help you find the right one for you, whether at sixth form, college or with other training providers, if you’ve left school, you could start straight away
