Participation and Transition Service

The Participation and Transition Service aims to ensure suitable Post 16 provision and support for young people to continue and progress into learning.

The Participation & Transition Service is a free and friendly support service providing information, advice and guidance to young people aged 16 to 18 who are not in education, employment or training (NEET). If a young person has a learning difficulty and/or disability then we can help them until they are 25.

Our duty

We have a duty to promote participation in learning to all young people aged 16 to 18. This is called RPA – Raising the Participation Age.  For more information please see Raising the Participation Age.

We have highly qualified advisers experienced in working with young people to help them make informed decisions, ensure they are aware of all options and potential career paths as well as providing information and advice on current employment, training and education opportunities.

What we provide

We provide help and support with:

  • jobs, education and training opportunities
  • looking for apprenticeships, traineeships and study programmes
  • benefit information including child benefit
  • CV writing
  • completing job applications
  • interview preparation
