The Post 16 Participation was established by Bristol City Council to encourage, enable and assist young people, between the age of 16-19 and in some cases up to 25, to participate in education, employment or training.

We aim to reduce the number of young people who are
Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET).

Bristol City Council through the post 16 participation team are required to promote, encourage and track young people between the ages of 16-18 (and up to age 25 for those with learning difficulties and those in care) to participate in education, employment or training, reducing the number of young people who are not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET).

We provide support to young people in signposting them to opportunities or specialist targeted youth support services. This can include applying for jobs, apprenticeships and college courses doing all that we can to give young people a positive outcome.

Young People

If you want information advice and guidance to support you taking the next steps, please explore our resources on www.p16p.co.uk and social media which will provide links.

Schools and colleges provide careers advice, and should explain what the options are when a course is finished or someone is leaving school. We can help anyone aged 16 to 18, (and up to age 25 for those with learning difficulties and those in care) who is not in education or training and unemployed, by explaining what opportunities there are to study or get a job locally.

We can help you through the targeted youth service (TYS) to:

  • recognise your skills and abilities
  • discuss and plan your short and long-term career options
  • look and apply for jobs and apprenticeships and help with CVs and applications
  • find an education or training course
  • find the right opportunity for you

We will also keep in touch to make sure you are progressing well in your new course, training or employment.
