Careers, jobs and training

You can get help to find and apply for a job or training. There are training schemes you can go on in Leicestershire.

Get help to find a job or training

If you’re still at school, talk to a careers adviser at your school or college to get help to:

  • decide what you want to do
  • find out about further education and training
  • apply for a job or training

In Leicestershire

You can get careers advice and help with applying for jobs from an organisation called Prospects. You can make an appointment or just go along to Prospects’s centres in Hinckley or Loughborough.

Who can use Prospects

You can use Prospects if you’re both of these:

  • 16 to 19 years old (or 16 to 25 years old if you have a learning disability or special educational need)
  • not in education, training or a job

Work Choice

Work Choice is a government scheme that can help you to find and keep a job if you’re disabled.
