1 Overview

Our Careers Team can provide free information, advice, guidance and support if:

  • you live in West Sussex
  • are aged 16-18 (or up to 25 if you’ve ever had a statement or an Education, Health and Care Plan)
  • are not in employment, education or training.

We can also help if you are working fewer than 16 hours a week or studying part time (for example retaking Maths or English GCSE), but not on a full time college course.

We can meet you at a local FindItOut centre, Children and family centre or library. We can also visit you at home, as long as there is an adult present.

We can help you to:

  • assess what you want to do next
  • recognise your skills, strengths and ambitions
  • find out about opportunities, including education, apprenticeship, employment, traineeship, further training and volunteering
  • develop a plan to help you achieve your goals, and keep on track with that plan
  • create a CV, practice interviews, search for jobs and complete job or benefit applications.

We may be able to speak on your behalf by being an advocate, if appropriate.

3 Updating us

The Careers Team are required to check what all school and college leavers aged 16-18 (or up to 25 if you’ve ever had a statement or an Education, Health and Care Plan) are now doing for education, employment or training.

We may call, text or write to you to obtain this information, but you can tell us anytime by completing the online form below.

You can also complete the form to update us if you have had a change to your education, employment or training placement since we last heard from you.
