Careers Advice in Schools

We believe that all young people need access to good quality, impartial careers and education support. Professional independent Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) provision raises aspirations and helps to reduce the likelihood of young people becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training).

We understand the need to secure high quality information, advice and guidance and guidance to young people and that economic conditions have become more challenging for professionals charged with delivering this responsibility.


To make informed decisions, young people and their families need local, up-to-date careers information in a variety of formats. Sheffield Futures can offer you a range of information products, including:

  • Options Guide 2017 covering post-16 choices for students in Y11
  • Access to a wide range of Sheffield Futures produced resources covering career choice and relevant pathways.


Careers information can be complex so young people and their families often need somebody to help them make sense of it. Sheffield Futures can provide a range of advice services including:

  • Open access, lunchtime clinics with a Careers Adviser in your school or college
  • Open access Careers Adviser clinics at parents events
  • A local telephone helpline


We recommend a one-to-one discussion with a qualified, independent Careers Adviser to help all young people make informed decisions.
