Careers information, advice and guidance

3. Information, advice and guidance in the community

We work with all young people Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) aged 16 and 17. The Raising of the Participation Age (RPA) requires all young people under the age of 18 to stay in learning until their 18th birthday. We support young people and their families to make sure they're challenged and supported into sustainable EET. This support continues up to the age of 25 for those with SEND and LAC.

We have a link worker with local colleges and training providers who make sure young people are in provision that's suitable for their needs.

We track the destinations of all young people aged 16 and 17 in Stockport making sure they're in sustainable education, employment and training.
