Post-16 Team

The Post-16 Team provides support for 16 and 17-year olds who are not in education, employment or training. Post-16 Coaches encourage young people to reach their full potential and take responsibility for decisions about their future. Young people are required to stay in education, employment or training until at least their 18th birthday. This is so that every young person gains the right knowledge and skills to move on to a successful career.

Your options

You can choose from:

  • staying in full-time education at school or college
  • starting an apprenticeship or traineeship
  • spending 20 hours or more a week working or volunteering while in part-time education or training

If you’re 18 we can offer a signposting/advice session over the phone or via e-mail.
