In school or college
Legally all schools must have someone who provides careers guidance to pupils. In most cases in Hertfordshire this is provided by YC Hertfordshire.
Outside of school or college
Visit a YC Hertfordshire access point for careers advice. Someone will be there who can help you to work out steps into employment. Find your local access point - and be sure to check the opening times, as each access point has different opening hours.
You can also speak to speak to YC Hertfordshire's LDD team on their duty line. They will offer advice about employment and personal development opportunities over the phone.
YC Hertfordshire's LDD team duty line is for all young people, whatever their ability or background.
Careers advice if you have an EHCP
For those with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), the YC Hertfordshire LDD team can offer Personal Advisers.
They work with young people from the age of 14, and are involved in the Yr 9 Preparing for Adulthood review. If you want your young person to have a Personal Adviser, the school or college must refer for you.
If the school’s careers guidance is not provided by YC Hertfordshire, then they may have their own offer. Or If you’d specifically like support from YC Hertfordshire, your school can refer to them, but there will be a cost to the school.
If your young person is not in education but would like this support, you can refer but there will be a cost for the service.
