Careers Wales and how they can help your child image

Sometimes, young people need support to help them transition from school to what comes next. We met with Dylan Evans from Careers Wales to find out more.

Getting support for the changes between school and what comes next, whether it’s a job or further education, is called Transition Planning. It’s about young people finding out what their goals and dreams are to help them prepare for the future.  This includes:

  • what type of job they would like to have
  • how they would like to spend their spare time
  • where they’d like to live

For young people with additional needs or disabilities, having the future they want involves a bit more planning. Careers Wales have Additional Learning Specialists who will start discussions with you and your child in Year 9, and co-ordinate meetings with the school, local college, employers and Social Services to make sure that everything links up and you get the best support for your child.
