Youth Options offer one to one support for 16-18 year olds who are not in employment education or training. We work with other local agencies to provide sign posting and support for young people to overcome their barriers to accessing college, apprenticeships or employment.
Meeting young people at home, in the community or in group sessions we can form and implement an individualised plan to help each young person to achieve their goals.
We work on employability skills such as CV writing, application forms and interview technique to improve a young person's chances of succesfully applying for jobs.
We have the information and contacts needed for when a young person needs assistance with improving qualifications such as English and Maths or even a CSCS card. We will search for courses, training opportunities and apprenticeships and help with the application process.
For young people who don't know what their next steps should be or perhaps don't have the confidence to seek out opportunities, we will offer key worker support to improve social and emotional capabilities in order to determine a young person's goals and ambitions.
