This site provides parents and carers of school and college leavers in the UK with the basic information they need in order to help their child make decisions about what to do next.
We also aim to provide information which is helpful to teachers.
Young people themselves will also find it useful. It is intended to be easy to navigate around and understand and is kept under constant review to ensure it is always accurate and up to date.
