Preparing for Adulthood – Finding a job and training

Getting prepared for adulthood should start from the earliest opportunity. This includes planning for any future employment.

In Portsmouth, if a young person has an education, health and care plan you may find this is discussed as early as year 6.

In Portsmouth city we offer a wide range of options for young people to think about when planning and moving ahead into employment or further training outside of formal education.
