Careers Wales

Careers Wales is the all age careers information and guidance service. Careers Wales has specialist advisors who are qualified careers advisers with additional training and experience in working with young people with learning difficulties and disabilities.

The specialist advisor meets with pupils in school from the age of 13 (year 9) onwards to talk to them about their ideas for the future and help them make plans. 

If a pupil has a statement of special edicational needs or has formal transitional planning meetings the specialist advisor will:

Attend transitional planning meetings.  The annual review in year 9 is called the Transition Review/Meeting.  People from other agencies, including Careers Wales, will be invited to this review to talk with you about your son or daughter's future.  The careers advisor will make every effort to attend.

At this review a Transition Plan will be drawn up by the school.  This will include ongoing plans for school and the pupil's ideas for the future.  This plan is reviewed every year.  The careers advisor will make every effort to attend the review in your child's final year of school to help them plan their move from school.

Produce a Leanring and Skills Plan if appropriate.  This will list your child's needs and say how these needs should be met.  With your child's permission this will be passed to the college/university or training provider so that they are aware of the support that needs to be in place.

When your son or daughter reaches the end of compulsory education in year 11, he or she will have one or more of these options:

Stay in school

Go to College- local or residential

Go onto a training course

Work- open or supported employment


Within these choices there are lots of other decisions to be made such as choosing the right courses or type of training.  The careers adviser can help with this.

Parents and carers have an important role in helping their children plan for the future.  Young people may need information or help from a wide range of people when making decisions about what they want to do at the end of year 11.
