Connexions partnerships “making good progress”

Two thirds of stakeholders think their local Connexions
Partnership has made good progress since it was set up, and nearly
80 per cent believe joint working between agencies providing
services to young people is now effective – compared to 40
per cent before Connexions.

According to a study for the Department for Education and
Skills, stakeholders believe the service’s main benefit for
young people had been better information and access to advice and
support. The main drawbacks for young people were a lack of
resources and confusion about different services within the
Connexions partnership, and the main challenge to joint working was
perceived as a lack of clarity about partners’ respective
roles and responsibilities.
