Careers guidance

Resources to help you plan your career.

1 Overview

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

  • live in West Sussex
  • are aged 16-24 and are not in employment, education or training (over 16 hours a week)
  • are not receiving support already from a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) work coach.

If you, or someone you know, or are working with, could benefit from careers support, please refer via the Careers Team referral form.

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
  • speak on your behalf by being an advocate, if appropriate.
