Looking for Guidance

Guidance helps you understand your options for training, education and work so that you can make decisions about your future.

Whatever your circumstances, you'll benefit from speaking to someone in more depth about the options available. This can be on the phone; face to face or even via the Internet. Here's what some people have said about how guidance has helped them:

“I now know what it is possible for me to do”

“I have a clearer understanding of what I need to consider”

You can speak to a guidance adviser through local councils, colleges, voluntary organisations, careers companies, universities and commercial organisations. Services vary throughout the UK and between local areas.
