As all young people have to stay in education until the age of 18, it’s essential that all learning routes and qualifications open to pupils are fully explained. The most suitable options available should also be discussed with both the learners and their parents or carers. This is especially important at this time as there are so many options available – GCSEs, A Levels, BTEC Diplomas, Apprenticeships, Study Programmes, Traineeships and more.

Good Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) can help to excite and engage young people when considering their future. Each learner is different and the aim is to encourage pupils to take control of their own pathway to education, raise their aspirations and support them in making the choice that will best suit them. Engaging a young person at this stage – and helping them make the right choices for their future – can often enable progression into further and higher education and open their eyes to the possibility of entering professions and careers that they may never have considered.

At Develop we have professionally qualified advisors to provide careers information, advice and guidance using the best, most up to date knowledge and having the skills to discover and meet the individual needs of each and every young person. We also have fantastic support from local and national companies who work with our advisors to provide current job requirements and real-world information from the workplace.

We are extremely proud of the positive impact we have had on the lives of many thousands of young people – often changing their future expectations by helping them to make the right education choices. Develop advisors support each and every young person they work with, supporting them through crucial decisions and transitions, encouraging them to fulfill their ambitions and achieve their full career and learning potential.
