Connexions Buckinghamshire

Connexions is a local authority funded service for young people.   Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC) fund Connexions Buckinghamshire to:

  • Support learners for whom BCC has a statutory duty including those with Statements of Special Educational Needs and those with Education, Health and Care Plans 
  • Support young people who are not in education, employment or training and have multiple barriers to re-engage in learning or employment
  • Support vulnerable young people in PRUs
  • Work with young people who are known to the Youth Offending Service
  • Support young people in care and those being supported by the After Care Team with special educational needs or Education, Health and Care Plans. 

The Connexions service is available through Connexions Personal Advisers (PA) on an appointment basis who can meet young people in libraries, job centres, coffee shops and outreach centres.  

To contact a Connexions PA young people can call:

Aylesbury and Buckingham areas - 0845 217 1366
High Wycombe and Chesham areas - 0845 217 1368

Every school has a duty to ensure that all of their pupils have access to independent and impartial information, advice and guidance about all of the options available to them at 16+.  Connexions works in the majority of Bucks schools so young people may be able to make an appointment with a Connexions PA through their school.  

NB:  The Connexions service in Buckinghamshire is delivered by Adviza Partnership.

How to inform Connexions Buckinghamshire of Post 16 Students Leaving Courses Early

Schools have a duty to inform their local authority's youth support service when Year 12 or 13 students leave or drop out of all of their courses early.  The youth support service can then quickly engage with the young person to help them get back into learning or work.  In Buckinghamshire the County Council have contracted Connexions Buckinghamshire to do this work.

A proforma is available to download below which should be completed whenever students leave all their courses early. 

A completed proforma should be returned as soon as possible after a student or group of students leave or drop out of all their courses of study.  The blank proforma is named XXXX Post 16 Students Leaving Courses and you need to change the XXXX to your DfE number before you save and return your completed proforma. It should be sent to Connexions Buckinghamshire via the secure file transfer website AnyComms Plus as follows:-  

  1. Once you have a file ready to send, please log onto AnyComms Plus at https://securetransfer.buckscc.gov.uk and choose Upload a file to the Local Authority from the home page.
  2. Click on the Browse button, navigate to where you have saved the file you want to send.
  3. Highlight the file e.g. XXXX Post 16 Students Leaving Courses where XXXX is your school’s DfE number and click on Open.
  4. For the file you wish to upload, please select File Type: Connexions Leavers.
  5. Once you are happy that the details for the file are correct, please click on the Upload All Files button. 

If you have a query about this, please do not hesitate to contact me on 0776 817 3399 or at hlee@buckscc.gov.uk.  Thank you for your support.
