Career Options and Advice for Young People

Page updated: 15/12/2022

Schools should have high aspirations for all pupils with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities, and support them in preparing for the next phase of education or training and beyond into adult life.

Pupils with SEN or disabilities should receive independent and impartial advice about all of the mainstream education, training and employment opportunities on offer, regardless of their individual circumstances. They should also be given information on the full range of specialist provision that is available and the support available to help them access the provision. 

The National Careers Service provides information, advice and guidance to help you make decisions on learning, training and work opportunities. The service offers confidential and impartial advice.
