Are you 16 to 18, not in education, employment or training and living in Brighton & Hove? If so, you can access free careers and employability support from the Youth Employability Service (YES).
If you're not in education, employment or training and have an additional learning need or a disability you can access support from YES up to the age of 25.
Young carers and care leavers (from Brighton & Hove) can also access this support up to the age of 25.
Our YES Employability Advisers provide free, impartial careers information, advice, guidance and support with finding the right college course, apprenticeship, training or job.
Through one to one appointments, our Advisers can help with:
- career and course decisions
- college applications
- job and apprenticeship searches
- writing a CV and job applications
- interview preparation
- access to personal development programmes and more.
We have strong relationships with organisations offering volunteering opportunities, employers, training providers and schools and colleges. Our Advisers can help young people to achieve AQA Unit Awards in a range of subjects to help to prepare for education or employment.
We work closely with the Supported Employment Team, and can help young people access help with issues including housing and wellbeing through groups like the YMCA Youth Advice Centre.
