    • What is the Connexions 360 website?

      Connexions 360 – Your life. Your East Sussex.

      We are East Sussex County Council’s website for young people. We aim to give you advice and information on everything, from how to choose your options at school to where to get contraception. Information on the website is written by experts from different teams at the Council.

      Media team

      The media team were a group of young people from East Sussex who helped create the Connexions 360 site. They were involved in everything, from choosing the name, to deciding what the pages would look like and what you’d like to read about. Thank you to everyone who got involved – Sam, Daniel, Lauren, Beth, Faye, Mel, Jordan, Joe, Frankie, Hannah, Jordan S and Matt.

      Our work experience students Rebecca, Paul and Donna also did a great job helping put the site together – thank you!

      The Connexions 360 service in East Sussex

      There are no longer any Connexions personal advisers in schools, colleges or drop-in centres in East Sussex. This is due to reductions in government budgets.

      Instead, you can find local information and advice on lots of subjects on the Connexions 360 website.

      Connexions Direct has been replaced by a new national website and phoneline offering careers information and advice for young people aged 13 to 19: National Careers Service.

      Who can I talk to if I need advice?

      At National Careers Service, advisers are on hand seven days a week from 8am to 10pm. You can talk to them in confidence about anything that’s on your mind over the telephone, by text, email or webchat.

      Freephone National Careers Service: 0800 100 900

      Put this number into your mobile phone now – you never know when you might need to talk to someone. If you call from a landline the call is free. If you call from a mobile you will be charged, but an adviser will call you straight back.
