Our Participation Advisers offer a targeted Careers Information, advice and guidance service for young people who are not in employment, education or training (NEET). From our Careers Centres in Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Halifax, and community venues across Kirklees and Calderdale they offer one-to-one support, helping them reach important decisions about their life, education and career choices.
We understand the issues and barriers facing young people who may be finding it difficult to move into sustainable learning or employment. Because of this we work hard to make our service as accessible as possible. Young people can contact their dedicated adviser in person, by phone, text or email, as well as following us on Twitter and liking us on Facebook.
As well as individually tailored careers information, advice and guidance, Advisers also provide practical help with CV writing, job/course applications and interview preparation.
Client centred & Multi-agency approach
We work closely with local organisations who provide different specialist services for young people. Advisers take a holistic view of a young person’s circumstances and engage the help of our partners to arrange a package of support, centred on the young person’s needs. Working together we aim to help them move into positive outcomes and improve their longer-term life chances.
We welcome any agency to work alongside us to provide support for a young person.
Please get in touch with us and become one of our trusted partners.

Young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)
C&K Careers has a dedicated team operating in secondary special schools and resourced provision, helping young people with their transition to further education, training, work and other destinations. The team also supports careers advisers, who deal with young people with special educational needs and disabilities in mainstream education.
We get to know each young person through individual interviews, group work and contacts with parents/ and carers. We are present at their transition review usually held in Year 9 and at the Year 11 review to help identify suitable progression routes. Where there is no suitable local provision, we will help with students' applications to specialist residential colleges.
