Supporting successful transitions
Supporting young people to make effective post-16 transitions into further education or employment can be highly challenging. Read on to find out about the support available in Somerset:
The SomersetWorks team liaises with schools and colleges to identify and support students from year 10-13 who are at risk of not making or sustaining a successful post-16 transition. You can refer a learner to SomersetWorks on this Referral Form.
Every post-16 college has transition officers to support students, parents and relevant agencies. The officers are usually placed within the student support team. Contact your young person's college direct for more information.
West Somerset has 5 Community Employment Hubs offering a range of support including access to IT facilities, help searching & applying for work, support on preparing for interviews and the West Somerset Advice service. Find out more
