CSW Group manages the Transitions Contracts in Devon, Cornwall, Plymouth and Torbay on behalf of the Local Authority.

We can support young people who are in education or those who are unemployed, with special emphasis on those young people who are:

  • Working with the Youth Offending Service
  • In care/Care Leavers
  • A Young Carer
  • Educated otherwise
  • Have a current Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP)

We provide support for young people to make successful transitions into employment, education and training.

Our support helps to ensure that all young people, particularly those who are disadvantaged, understand that there is a broad range of options open to them. We know that this can be overwhelming so we help these young people to navigate the full range of options and choose those most suitable to their needs and aspirations. Through our support, we are able to ensure each young person understands the local labour market and how their skills can align to potential career opportunities. With a greater understanding of their options, young people are able to make informed decisions and, therefore, are better able to successfully transition into further learning, employment, apprenticeships, traineeships and more.

We work with some of the most disadvantaged and deprived young people across the South West. We engage with them through their schools, colleges and communities, and provide tailored advice and guidance to help positively influence decisions.
