We have a seamless approach that includes a series of stages and support mechanisms to help young people all the way through their journey into employment or education. We join up the dots for young people so they do not lose their way or have a crisis of confidence jumping from one dot to the next. Many of the young people we work with have a complete lack of consistency in their lives and do not have a responsible adult who is able or willing to support them on their journey. We become their professional friends; we are there when they need us, we listen, and we are patient.
We also recognise that some young people have issues that we cannot solve, and that they may find their transition difficult. For that reason, even when a young person re-enters mainstream education or employment, we still offer support and guidance where needed. We provide some continuity of care, track their progression, and help them in a crisis.
