Careers advice for young people

Careers guidance, information and advice for young people in Barnet after leaving Year 11 until the age of 19 (or 25 for young people with statements/EHCP). Provided by Barnet Education, Employment and Training Support (BEETS).

All young people now need to continue in learning at least until their 18th birthday. This is called Raising the Participation Age (RPA)

How we can help

We can advise you on the following options:

  • remaining in full time education or training in a school, college or training provider
  • applying for an apprenticeship or traineeship
  • getting a job, becoming self-employed or a volunteer for more than twenty hours a week, including doing part-time training or education alongside (usually approximately one day a week).

We can also help you with the following:

  • careers guidance
  • writing CV’s
  • interview techniques.

We have also produced the Post-16 Directory of Vocational Education Prospectus. Here you will be able to find all the courses on offer to you in Barnet. All  of them support or will lead to you to directly to careers and some even give you the chance to learn while you earn.
