Careers information, advice and guidance

2. Information, advice and guidance in schools

Stockport Family offers a universal buy-back service to all Stockport secondary schools. This is an offer of an independent, impartial careers interview for all young people in year 11 to explore post 16 options and develop individual action plans. Schools can also buy back additional services to support young people as part of the school’s careers education programme.

We target and support all young people with special education needs (SEND) and looked after children (LAC), and those at risk of becoming not in education, employment, or training (NEET) in year 11. This support continues throughout the academic year and during transition into further education, employment and training. This service is free to all Stockport mainstream schools and Pupil Referral Units (PRUs).
