School leavers

Young people leaving school are presented with lots of opportunities and decisions to make about their future career path, training and employment. It can be a daunting time for young people and their families but support and advice is available.


During Years 10 and 11, schools will be engaging with pupils about their options and what their next steps might be. This includes Careers Advisors visiting schools and pupils having opportunities to visit career and recruitment events.

The council has also invested in Unifrog – an online impartial platform that helps students search courses and consider their next steps after school. Unifrog helps students to compare every course and apprenticeship, and then apply successfully. Please speak to your school to access Unifrog.

If you are a parent or carer and want to know more about the support available in your child’s school, contact the school directly.
