Not in education, employment or training, or at risk of dropping out? There are drop-in sessions and support workers who can make sure that you get the help you need, wherever you are in Oxfordshire!

Oxfordshire County Council's Education, Employment and Training Services (EET Service) includes the CHOICES and EET Casework service for young people not in work or learning, and those at risk of dropping out, aged 16-20 or up to 25 for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and those who are looked after or leaving care (LAC). This provides support with:

  • Job Seeking
  • apprenticeship routes
  • CV building
  • finding training
  • 1:1 support
  • action plans
  • signposting for benefit advice
  • improving your prospects
  • looking at other choices that could be right for you
