Choosing a Post-16 Education Setting and Careers Support

Moving from secondary school to the next stage can be a big step for young people, especially those with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

Some young people will need lots of planning and support to help them move to the next step and aren’t always sure where they would like to learn or train next.
