Youth Employability Service

Find information, advice and guidance for young people aged 16 to 19 years old, living in Brighton & Hove who are not in education, employment or training.

If you're aged 16 to 19, not in education, employment or training and living in Brighton & Hove you can access free careers and employability support from the Youth Employability Service (YES).

If you 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 give free, impartial careers information, advice, guidance and support with finding the right college course, apprenticeship, training or job.

You can book a drop in session with YES.

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.
