At the age of 16 young people at school have to make significant decisions around what they will do at the end of Year 11. School 6th form? College? What subjects to study? Apprenticeship? Traineeship? The decision they make could potentially impact them for the rest of their lives.
Again at 18, if they have stayed at school or college they will have another big decision to make. University? What subjects to study? Apprenticeship?
Many young people will know what they want to do and the steps required and all young people making these key decisions will have support from the school or college Career Adviser and other school staff.
However, there will always be young people who would benefit from having additional professional support when making these decisions.
The Career Seekers Direct team of professionally qualified Careers Advisers and Employability coaches have supported many young people when they are making these decisions to ensure they make the best decision for them.
The team ensure young people who need it, have extra time and additional personal support when making these key decisions.
In addition, once they have a clear direction, the team can support the young person to create the right 'tools' which will give them the best chance of transitioning to the next step successfully - whether that is support to produce a CV, interview practice, apprenticeship research, completing application forms or UCAS forms.
The service is delivered either via Zoom or in person depending on location and what format works best for the young person. Details of the services can be found in the following leaflet or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call us on 07901 517012 for more information.
