Local Offer - Preparing for Adult Life
Preparing for Adult Life
When you're 14, people will start to talk to you about what you want to do when you leave school and grow up. This will start in your year 9 transition review at school and each year your ‘transition plan' will be updated.
There will be lots of changes happening in your life over the next few years, some you will be happy with, and some you will be sad about. This is all part of growing up and there are lots of people who can help you get ready and understand the changes.
Some of the things you might be asked to think about include:
Education - what do you want to learn
Preparing for and getting a job - what job would you like, what needs to happen to get you ready for work
You'll be involved in putting together a plan for your future. You'll be invited to visit places that you may be interested in joining, and given lots of information about what is available. It's important that you attend the visits and gather information so you can make an informed decision. We call this time between 14 and 25 transition. Teachers, parents, Connexions staff, social workers and many others will give you the advice and guidance you need to help you become as independent as possible and get the help you need.
