For those moving on from school who may need some additional support to find the right career opportunity for them, our Next Steps service is on offer.

This involves young people having regular contact with the SDS team at their local centre until they reach their goal of further or higher education, training or a job.

Those who have a care experienced background will be supported up to the age of 26 as part of Next Steps, in line with our commitment as a Corporate Parent.
