In Addition For Secondary Schools

Connexions Services (provided by North Lincolnshire's IAG Team) - Once you are aged 13 or over we are required to pass on certain information to the Connexions services. Connexions is the government's support service for all young people aged 13 to 19 in England. We must provide both your and your parents(s) name and address, and any further information relevant to the Connexions services' role. However, you (if you are over 16) or your parents can ask that no information beyond name and address be passed to Connexions. Please inform the school office if you wish to opt-out of this arrangement.


In order to enable young people in North Lincolnshire to access the Lincs2 e-prospectus, the council provides basic demographic data to the company 'First Media' who manage this service. The data is used to enable young people aged 14-19 to register with the Lincs2 website.

The Lincs2 e-prospectus is a comprehensive one-stop source of information that lists and provides details of all the qualifications, courses and providers in North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. It will help your child find out what courses are on offer in your area and allow you to apply.

Further information is available here.

Please inform Liz Wild (Lincs2 Prospectus Development Co-ordinator) on 01472 325203 if you wish to opt-out of this arrangement.
