Getting professional support from an experienced adviser can make a real difference to young people facing some big decisions.  The service is delivered by friendly, professional and impartial careers advisers with a background in supporting young people.

Young people can get help and advice in a variety of ways, with the most popular being over the telephone, or online via a web-chat.

Online information includes:

  • • job profiles
  • • job market information
  • • Skills Health Check
  • • CV advice and support
  • • funding advice
  • • course information

Webchat: is available from 8am to 10pm, seven days a week

Follow-up calls are available to find out how things went, and to offer further advice.

Young people can also e-mail a question using an internet form, get basic information sent to a mobile by text (SMS: 07766 4 13 2 19) and join in moderated chat-rooms and message-boards with their peers.
