Personal Coaches

An allocated Personal Coach from the Learning, Skills and Employment Service works directly with young people and their schools; arranging education mentoring and delivering Careers Information and Guidance for Children Looked After in Year 11.

The Personal Coach offers ongoing help and support to young people, assisting them to identify and work towards their future education goals. They will help arrange visits and applications to Further Education and Higher Education provisions (Colleges and Universities) and provide a link between young people and Employers, including Apprenticeship and Training providers. By working closely with LACES (Looked After Children Education Service) and the Leaving Care team, the Personal Coach ensures that all services involved in the young person’s growth and development are working together to prepare and support each young person into future opportunities that they are interested in.
