The aim will be to support you to help you choose the options that best suit your own needs and your ideas about your own future.

There are many routes open to you - for example you could:

  • undertake an apprenticeship
  • carry out work experience
  • take part in a volunteering programme
  • secure a job

If you have no idea what's best for you - don't worry!
