Who We Are
At The Manchester College, we have a highly dedicated School Liaison Team that work in partnership with schools, sixth forms, academies, IAG providers and other services to encourage and inform young people all around Greater Manchester and beyond about their future education and career opportunities.
We’re extremely passionate about delivering our extensive service to any students in years 8 through to year 13. We’ve been working together for a number of years now, bringing impartial advice and guidance to the Greater Manchester area, through our work with a wide cohort of schools, sixth forms and other organisations across the region.
Find out below what makes our team unique.
Our Size and Experience
We’re one of the largest school liaison teams in Greater Manchester, with access to a wide range of resources. Our team members come from a diverse range of backgrounds, which means we each have something unique to offer in our advice and guidance. Within our team, we have experience in the fields of education, business and even performing arts!
Each member of our team has a minimum of a level 3 qualifications in Advice and Guidance, or they are working towards obtaining it. Together we’re an award-winning team, with expert knowledge of FE, HE and apprenticeships, which are offered through ourselves and our partner organisations UCEN Manchester and Total People.
Our Expertise and Excellence
Every single member of our team has a minimum of a Level 3 qualification in Advice and Guidance, or they are working towards obtaining it. Together we’re an award-winning team, having been recognised for our ‘Outstanding Team Contribution for All Round Excellence’ by the College.
Our Impartiality and Dedication
Having secured Matrix accreditation again this year, we are able to offer impartial advice and guidance where appropriate, to any students considering their future options. We’re fully committed to helping every student succeed, and this is why each school and sixth form we work with has their own dedicated School Liaison Advisor.
They work closely with schools and their students to support them with their choices and post 16 and 18 options.
Our Innovation and Creativity
We are experts in the field of further education and offer innovative solutions to ensure young people receive the most beneficial advice about their education and career opportunities.
We are always developing new and creative ways to support students and provide them with invaluable information. This is achieved through our delivery of workshops, classroom sessions and other events.
We are also happy to modify our sessions, or even create brand new, bespoke sessions just for your school or sixth form. These bespoke sessions can be focused on employability, post-16 options, HE, apprenticeships or specific subjects. If you have an idea of an event you would like us to deliver, please contact us.
Working with us
We are happy to work with all schools and sixth forms in the region in any capacity. This can include a wide range of workshops, classroom sessions, assemblies, parents’ evenings and careers conventions.
We are always pleased to build relationships with new schools and sixth forms, as well as maintaining and building upon our current ones. We like to keep our schools and sixth forms up to date with the exciting work of the Liaison Team, through our termly newsletter.

How we’ve helped others
The relationships we build with local schools are very important to us. Below are some comments from school staff and how we have worked with them:
“The representatives from the college were very knowledgeable and offered sound advice to both pupils and parents. They highlighted the strengths of the college and were extremely positive about the potential experiences for future students.”- G. Peacock, West Hill School.
“I would like to thank you on behalf of Manchester Health Academy for the wonderful support that Raabya gave to the school last night during our careers evening. The students gave great feedback about her knowledge and professional warmth. We felt that the School Liaison Team are a credit to your college and I am sure they will inspire students to make applications this next coming year.”- L Hutchinson, Manchester Health Academy.
