Careers guidance

Resources to help you plan your career.

1 Overview

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

  • live in West Sussex
  • are aged 16-18, or 16-25 (school leaver) with an Education, Health and Care plan (EHCP) and not in employment, education or training
  • are aged 19-24 and not in employment, education or training not currently working with a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) work coach.

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.
