Careers Wales

Careers Wales has specialist advisors who have additional training and experience in working with young people with Additional Learning Needs. The Careers Advisor supports pupils and their families by offering impartial advice about the opportunities that are available to pupils when they leave Trinity Fields.

The Careers Advisor will be invited to the annual review meetings from year 10. Everyone involved in the annual review will discuss your son or daughter's future and ensure that there is a clear transition plan.

When your son or daughter leaves Trinity Fields (this is usually at the end of Year 14 when your son or daughter turns 19 years old), he or she will be able to choose one of the following options:

Local college
Specialist college – funding for specialist colleges will need to be approved by the Local Authority.
Day services and vocational opportunities provided by Social Services

The Careers Advisor will support families with the application process.

The Careers Advisor will produce a Learning and Skills Plan if your child decides to continue their education at either a local or specialist college. This will detail your child's needs and say how these needs should be met. With your child's permission this will be passed to the college/university or training provider so that they are aware of the support that needs to be in place.

Parents and carers have an important role in helping their children plan for the future. Young people may need information or help from a wide range of people when making decisions about what they want to do at the end of year 14.

For further information please contact Sarah Bainton (Careers Adviser) on 02920 846646 or speak to your child’s class teacher.
