Next Steps

Our new Next Steps programme is all about Post 16 Transition and supporting young people to stay in education, employment or training until the age of 18!

Did you know?

There is a Transition team at Surrey County Council who support young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

The Transition team work with a range of people to help you with your journey to adulthood; this journey is sometimes called “Transition”.

Family Voice Surrey

Family Voice Surrey hold an annual ‘Preparing for Adulthood’ event. This year it is taking place virtually due to COVID 19 guidelines.

There will be lots of great information shared by their guest speakers focusing on post-16 transition, pathways to employment, health and community. Get involved to access all the information you or your parent/guardian needs for both post-16 and adulthood transition.

There will also be live Q&A sessions available so you can get the answers you need from the speakers!

Apprenticeships

The User Voice and Participation Team employs apprentices who have accessed or currently accessing services in Surrey.

For example, some of our apprentices may have experience of accessing Mental Health services, have an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP), be a Young Carer, a Care Leaver or a Looked After Child. Apprentices working in the User Voice and Participation Team are vital to all our work, projects and events we do!

Check out the below to hear 3 of the User Voice and Participation teams apprentices discuss their views on their job role and also learn what the UVP team manager and the apprentices supervisor’s do to support them!
