What to expect at an appointment
In an appointment, we will help you to explore ideas and options. This can be for the next steps after leaving school, deciding on a career or job change, or just for some information and advice on what is out there.
We aim to –

-What is stopping you from getting where you want to be
What you can do to prepare –
