Who can we help?

You can see an adviser at our centre if you are:

  • Aged 16 to 19 (up to 25 for young people with learning difficulties or disabilities)
  • Living in Leicester city
  • Not in full-time work, education or training
  • Not happy with your training, job or course

What if I am still at school or college?

Your school or college are responsible for giving you careers advice. Ask them to put you in touch with an adviser who works in the school or college.

Before you see an adviser

Think about what questions you would like to ask and what you want to find out. It doesn't matter if you don't know what you want to do; we can help you to decide. Bring details of any grades you have. If you don't have any qualifications we can still hep you. If you have a CV, try to bring a copy with you. If not, we can help you create one.
