Through the reforms we have developed a clearer understanding of what the evidence is that supports young people into employment. Vocational profiles are a useful and successful way of finding out what kind of job a young person may be interested in. This can inform the range of work experience that a young person does. A job coach is a professional who supports someone to get a job, learn how to do the job and continue to provide just enough support until the young person no longer needs it, or until natural support can be provided within the work environment. There should be clear, evidence-based employment pathways with opportunities for volunteering, supported internships, traineeships and apprenticeships and good careers advice and guidance to help young people with their decision-making.
