Pathway Plan

Signpost to my future

Your Pathway Plan is a chance to discuss your plans for the future once you finish school at age 16. 

You will make your plan with your social worker who can help you to put things in place to make it happen.


Your social worker or personal advisor will discuss your plans with you and help you to work out what you need as you start to live independently and continue in education or training. That could mean you stay on at school, take an apprenticeship, become a trainee or go to college.

Once your Pathway Plan is agreed you can still change your mind about what you want to do.

Dudley Council can provide their Children in Care and Care Leavers with help until they're 21 (24 if they're still in education or training) so make the most of what’s on offer.
