Education, employment and training

Education, employment and training

The Post-16 Pathways Guide 2022 to 2023 is a guide aimed at young people and their parents and carers.

Current legislation sets out that young people will continue in education or training until at least their eighteenth birthday (throughout years 12 and 13). Staying in education or training helps ensure that every young person can gain skills and qualifications that help them to progress to higher education, work and adult life; enabling them to succeed in the fast changing, modern world.

York has many services to help young people with their next steps. Whether you just want information, or you would like help with finding opportunities, making applications, CVs, interview preparation or keeping motivated, there are services to help.

Specialist Learning and Employment Adviser Team

The City of York Council's Specialist Learning and Employment Adviser Team supports young people aged 13 to 25 years old who are in the care of the local authority or have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP). 

The team's focus is to help young people to take their next step towards employment, by providing advice and guidance on how to access appropriate education, training or employment opportunities.
