After leaving

After LeavingYoung people who have left school or college still get support... decide on the next step that is right for them.

If they are not sure whether to look for work* or carry on with their education.

*Important: Young people have to stay in learning, including training, until they are 18, due to the Government Raising the Participation Age (RPA). RPA is about making sure young people develop the skills employers need to compete in a global economy.

Careers advice

Careers advisers from C&K Careers follow up students until they are settled. Advisers:

  • see young people in their nearest centre
  • help and advice with applications for further and higher education, jobs, apprenticeships and training
  • offer help with job search
  • help with applying for benefits.

You can help too by:

  • talking to them about their ideas – research suggests parents and carers are the single biggest influence on young people's career choices
  • helping them consider what their choices mean, so they follow the route that best suites their skills and their future plans
  • encouraging them to get advice from advisers and speak to training providers, employers and colleges when they get the chance – the more they talk to people the easier it will be to make the right decision.
