After School - What Next?

After School, What Next?

When a young person prepares for what they will do when they leave school and become an adult, this is described as transition or a journey into adult life. There are many aspects to consider when planning for the future. Leaving school can seem daunting for both students and their families and can raise many questions about what a young person should do next. There are lots of options in York, North Yorkshire and the East Riding and a number of local organisations who can offer information and support to help young people make choices about their future.

 

Students who Live in York:

Support from the Transition Team

Those students who live in York and attend Applefields School will be supported by staff from the local authority's Transition Team. The multi-professional team of children's and adult Social Workers and Connexions Advisors are based in the Transition Zone which is attached to Applefields School. Members of the team will work with students and their family to support their transition from school to post school options.

 

This process starts by a member of the Transition Team finding out about the young person’s aims, hopes and ambitions. Connexions Advisers offer advice and guidance to help to prepare young people to make choices. Care Managers (if you have one) together with Connexions Advisers will also spend time with young people and those who know them to consider what their next steps after school may be. Creative ways are used to engage and communicate with young people and help them to think about and plan their future.
