Page 4: Aims of the card

The Connexions Card is a smart card. It aims to encourage and motivate young people to continue in learning beyond the age of 16 by:

  • providing a range of discounts to help reduce the cost of learning, covering local transport, learning materials and leisure
  • motivating young people to fulfil their potential by rewarding attendance and application through incentives and further discounts within leisure facilities and on the high street
  • improving the career and life choices that young people make by providing them with better information through a website (http://www.connexionscard.com)

In addition, the Card will:

  • secure access to personal information using a password and PIN number
  • help with enrolment processes in schools and colleges
  • help in validating payment when applying for a post-16 Education Maintenance Allowance.
