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
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 is a government scheme that can help you to find and keep a job if you’re disabled.
Access to Work grants can help you pay for equipment, fares to work, a support worker and more.
A Disability Employment Adviser (DEA) or work coach at your local Jobcentre Plus can help you find a job or find training to get new skills. Your DEA will also be able to help you apply for residential training.
