Our service is responsible for helping young people to remain in education until they are 18, which can be full time education, an apprenticeship, or a job (with accredited training).
We have qualified staff who can help you to:
Find the right course or training opportunity by providing careers guidance
Find an apprenticeship or job with training
Write a CV, complete application forms and prepare for interviews
Search for local job vacancies and provide you with tips on how to find a job
Access information about welfare support, benefits and any available grants
It is a legal requirement for every local authority to gather and collate information on young people’s destinations, to find out if they are in work or are seeking work, or if they are in education or training.
'Local authorities are responsible for tracking young people’s participation in education and training. They record information about young people's current activity, their characteristics and aspirations. This provides them with the information they need to support young people to engage in education and training, identify those who are not participating and to plan services to meet young people’s needs.'
