Further Advice and Guidance – Website Links


The National Careers Service provides free impartial information, advice and guidance on education, training and work to adults and young people aged 13 years and over. Individuals can access support through a website, telephone helpline and web chat service. Advisers can support young people to make informed choices by providing insights into all the different routes including apprenticeships, traineeships, other technical qualifications and academic options. This can supplement support available to students through the school or college, particularly outside of term time. Transition support after exam results is often critical in securing a successful destination for school and college leavers.
