Careers, education and schools

Careers support for 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 supply 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.

At Sheffield Futures we can help you meet your statutory requirements and tailor a package to suit your individual needs within your budget.

Our Careers Advisers

At Sheffield Futures our Careers Advisers are professionally qualified to Level 6 and CDI registered, have no affiliation to any educational establishment, employer or learning provider, have enhanced DBS status and are supported through continued professional development.

We deliver

guidance interviews for individuals or small groups of students in Y9-Y13, discussing next steps and option choices and an individual Action Plan for every student.

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 and 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.


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

Resources for schools

When your school joins us, you gain access to our resources, which are updated regularly so you always have the latest information about local courses, colleges, pathways and everything else your students need to know to get where they want to be.
