Are you, or is someone you know, aged 15-24 and in need of help to plan for the future?
This project aims to decrease the number of young people leaving high school without firm plans for employment, a college or sixth form place, or any other known educational or training destination.
We support further education institutions to deliver promotional activities that encourage and support school leavers to transition into further education and also help ensure that young people who do not want to go on to college have opportunities to consider employment options and develop their employability.
We offer trips to raise aspiration levels and help young people make informed decisions about their future learning pathways. We support Cardiff and Vale College to provide ‘real-time’ application sessions in Eastern High School and work closely with Cardiff Youth Service and Careers Wales to offer additional enrollment activities within schools and community-based youth club settings for any students who miss these initial sessions or wish to apply elsewhere.
Young people who either don’t want to or are not able to progress into further education will be made aware of and supported to access projects that will increase their employability, namely the Communities For Work programme or the LIFT programme. During key periods of the year we offer engagement activities and regular drop-in sessions under the banner ‘Your Life, Your Future’, which raise awareness of the options open to young people and develop motivation and aspiration.
On GCSE results day our staff and volunteers offer support to young people collecting their results and intercept those that have poor results to encourage them to still attend planned appointments with colleges, or the open enrollment sessions that occur over the following week if they have yet to apply.
We also help people who have been out of school for a few years but are not working. If you are aged 15-24 and wants some help to figure out what route to take, please get in touch!
Who is it for? Ages 15 – 24 not in education, training or employment.
