If you don't know what the future looks like yet...
Is your young person in year 11 and still not decided what they want to do in September?
You can support your young person to make this important decision, by encouraging them to think about the following:
- Do they want to continue in education or look for employment with training?
- If they want to continue in education, do they want to continue in a school, either the one that they currently attend (if their school has a Sixth Form) or go to a different school or do they want to go to college?
- Do they want to earn whilst they learn? If so, they could consider an Apprenticeship?
- Would they prefer to undertake training?
For further information on these options your young person could visit the SfYP Website Jobs and careers (servicesforyoungpeople.org), or if they would prefer to speak to someone, they could do the following:
