Not ready for a job club yet?
If you are aged 16-18 and have difficulties in your life that are making it hard for you to engage with learning, you can register to get help from the EET Support Service, who can help you find learning opportunities and get support to overcome problems in your life.
Crucial: If you have special educational needs, disabilities or a learning difficulty, you may be worried about moving into the world of work. But there are lots of great opportunities in work, training, and more, in supportive groups that help you build skills and confidence. Workers at your local young person's job club can tell you more, or you can register with the EET Support Service.
