Amazing Futures career support

Are you thinking about the next steps for your future in education, employment or training? Our Amazing Futures career support programme can help.

Amazing Futures careers support during coronavirus lockdown
The careers support team work partly from home and partly in the Amaze office. We offer appointments over Zoom, on the telephone or in person at our Amaze offices. Where the appointment is held depends on the young person’s preference, and any Covid regulations at the time.

We are still supporting young people to plan for the future by looking at their options in education, employment and training. By identifying a career aim, we can help young people to take the steps they need to achieve their goals. We have produced a young people’s guide to education, employment and training during coronavirus lockdown.

Parent carers are welcome to join in our meetings if the young person is happy with this: we are aware they can be so important in finding the right placement.

Amazing Futures careers support is open to all young people with SEND age 14-25.

How to contact us: 

If you have any questions, or would like support from this service, please email or phone Dara Russell on 07485 345903.

What support can I get?

We’ll support you to figure out the best next steps for you, and help you feel ready to take them.

Some of the help we offer:

  • one to one support to make an action plan – we’ll help you think about what you want to do and how to make steps towards it.
  • training sessions – we’ll help you learn the skills needed to find a job, or a college or training placement. For example, CV writing and interview techniques.
  • workshops – we’ll look at the choices ahead, and what the next steps might be. Your parent or carer can come with you to these workshops if you want.

We’ll let you know which sessions are coming up, and you decide which ones you want to go to.

We’ve also got loads of useful info about education, employment and training options in Brighton & Hove and East Sussex. Check out our Amazing Futures Career Support – Options Guide or take a look at our Education and Employment page for young people.
