School Liaison Team

Keighley College School Liaison team is privileged and proud to work in partnership with schools, colleges and education settings throughout Yorkshire.

Our job is to create and deliver complimentary sessions and activities to help students discover their post-16 options and plan for their future. Every day we help schools with careers education, offering advice and expert impartial guidance. Whether your school is hosting a careers convention, parents’ evening, drop-in session or assembly, we are the people for you.

We paint an engaging and true picture of each of our specialist subject areas through assemblies, careers fairs, curriculum experience sessions, college tours, transition talks and bespoke progression workshops.
