Young People

Work, training and education support for young people in the Bradford district

Are you aged between 13 and 19 (or up to 25 if you have a learning difficulty or disability)?  Bradford Council has specially trained advisers who can support you to make the right decisions for your future, to put a plan into place and to find the right opportunities.

  • Help you decide what options to take for GCSEs
  • Help you think about what to do after GCSEs
  • Give you advice on careers and pathways
  • Prepare you for writing CVs, applications, personal statements etc.
  • Give interview tips
