Moving on from full-time education is a worrying prospect for all young people. However, for young people with additional needs, planning will normally start during their annual Transition Review meetings at school. Their Personal Adviser will usually give lots of ideas and suggestions about the options available when they leave school. These options might include getting a job or doing a course that will help get ready for work, starting an apprenticeship or volunteering.
There are a number of organisations across Royal Greenwich that support young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities to prepare for work and to find a job.
Many types of job may be available and in a lot of cases some form of training programmes would be included.
This section gives information about these organisations and the services they provide to support young people into employment.
