Their key focus is to offer one to one interviews focusing on post 16 options and possible future career plans. They can offer targeted support with areas such as CV writing, job hunting and interview techniques to those school leavers who plan to look for work. They also help those young people interested in applying for FE College with their course selection and application forms and offer independent advice on A level and Higher Education options.
