Medical Needs Teaching Service

Careers Guidance / Next Steps

The MNTS considers this to be an important part of the child or young person’s educational planning, in liaison with school especially at KS4. The MNTS pupils access their careers advisor from school, through their personal education planning meetings.  Young people’s mainstream schools or specialist settings will have published the details of the Careers Leader and summary of their careers programme on their websites. 

In the Teenage Cancer Unit (TCU), the learning mentor will assist with personal statements for university, and college applications. Across the service we encourage discussion about future aspirations to inform personalised education programmes.

At Queenswood Education Centre, pupils have access to post 16 planning and support from the Pupil Engagement and Transitions Officers in addition to the support provided by their own school.
