Schools and Colleges

Schools and Colleges This part of the website provides an overview of the services GMCP offers to schools and colleges. It is set in the context of the changing structures for all children and young people's services signalled by Every Child Matters, Youth Matters and the 14-19 Education and Skills Implementation Plan.

Over the next year we will be responding flexibly to these changes working collaboratively with local authorities, schools, colleges and emerging collaborative arrangements to meet the needs of young people across the area and to support raised aspirations and attainment, increased progression and a reduction in those young people who do not engage post-16. In particular over the next year we aim to:

  • Ensure our services meet the new Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) standards, and support partners to also meet these standards so that all young people receive their entitlement to IAG
  • Maintain targeted support to young people with complex needs including those with learning difficulties and/or disabilities
  • Support 14-19 curriculum developments including careers education
  • Make appropriate contributions to ECM outcomes for all young people

We recognise that your encouragement and support can make a big difference to your child’s success and can help you by making sure that you have the information and advice you need to support your child with the choices and decisions they face.

If your son or daughter attends school or college in Salford they may see one of our advisers and have access to a specialist Career Connect service which has been designed especially for each individual school commissioning the service.

You can read more about Career Connect here.

We will continue to contact your child after they have moved into work or training to offer support if required.
