Planning for transition to Adulthood
Transition and change
Transition from school to adulthood is a time of celebration,
change and challenge for all young people. It involves lots of
thinking and decisions about:
- Work and getting a job
- Continuing education and training
- Where to live and who to live with
- Personal relationships and having a social life
This transition is about the change from being a teenager to an
adult. It includes the change from Children's Services to Adult's
Services and from school into adult life.
