Get help from a Young Person's Worker, Early Help Coach or Job Centre Plus.

If you're 16-18 and not in education, employment or training (NEET), you can get 1-1 help and support from a Young Person's Worker or Early Help Coach.

They will be able to help you look at options, offer advice and guidance – maybe think about things you haven’t thought of before and also support with other issues that may be getting in the way.

Work Experience and Volunteering

If you’re not currently in employment, education or training, this a great way to improve your skills, have things to add onto your CV and boost your chances of getting a job.

Many of the Training Providers and organisations listed above offer programmes that include a lot of work experience too, so they may be worth considering.

Volunteers have a 27% better chance of finding a job after being out of work than non-volunteers. You'll also gain new skills, meet new people and gain invaluable experience.
