“When my mum arranged an interview with the Careers Adviser, I wasn’t sure how that would help much. I didn’t know what I wanted to do anyway. I wasn’t motivated to go. Once I was there, the Careers Adviser I saw was very friendly and assured me that there's always options and my future starts now. I feel more motivated and I have an idea of what I want to work towards. Thank you so much.”

“This is such a great service, I wish this was available to me when I was in school! I would have known exactly want steps to take towards achieving my goals quickly. I arranged an interview for my son, he came back so motivated and focused. Thank you.”

“It has made me realise that it is actually down to me to make decisions about my future. It has been helpful to know where to actually get the information I need.”
