Careers | September Support Guarantee

Careers | September Guarantee

The September Guarantee is a guarantee of an offer, made by the end of September, of an appropriate place in post-16 education or training for every young person completing compulsory education.

Ensuring that every young person has an offer of a place to progress onto is particularly important as it helps young people make a seamless transition into post-16 learning or employment with training.

The September Guarantee is supported by good quality information, advice and guidance. This can come from a number of sources which include:

  • Teachers
  • Parents and family friends
  • Careers Coordinators and Guidance Advisers
  • On-line and printed information about courses, progression routes and employment routes

What does the Guarantee offer?

The September Guarantee is an offer of a place in one of the following:

  • A school sixth form
  • A college of further education
  • Employment with training to at least level 2
  • An apprenticeship
