Newcastle Careers Team support young people in Newcastle schools to make successful transitions into further education, employment, and training.

Each school has a named Careers Adviser, from the team, who can offer support. The advisers are experienced and qualified to level 6 in Careers Information, Advice and Guidance.  They will provide additional support to several students in school during year 11 but are available at the Skills Hub, and other community venues, throughout the year to offer advice and guidance, to any student from year 11 upwards, who is unsure about their next steps.

Newcastle Careers Team can provide support and advice on the following:

  • Helping you make decisions about what to do after year 11, which can include 6th form and University courses, jobs, apprenticeships, and vocational training courses.
  • Advice on personal development courses and support.
  • Advice and support with job search and help with applications forms, making CV’s and going to interviews.
  • If you are wanting to move on from your current job or training position, we can offer advice about your next steps.
