Education, Employment and Training Support

If you are 16-18 years old, live in Essex and are not in education, employment or training, an Employability and Skills Adviser can help you with your next steps. We also offer support with post-16 options to young people who are in home education or off school roll from the January of (what would be) Year 11.
