Progress Team

Have you just got your GCSE or A-Level results?

You may have concerns and questions about your next steps in education, employment and training.

The Progress Team wants to celebrate your success and can help you if you are uncertain about what to do next.

Support during COVID-19

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions our services have changed to provide a service that is planned and enables social distancing interviews. 

Throughout August, appointments can be arranged at:

  • LIFT Youth Hub, 45 White Lion Street N1 9PW on Wednesdays and Fridays between 10 am and 4pm.
  • 222 Upper Street, N1 1RX, Monday to Friday between 10am and 4pm.

All interviews need to be booked in advance.

Book by calling 020 7527 7031 or emailing progress@islington.gov.uk


About the Progress Team

The Progress Team provides help with a range of issues affecting young people including:

  • career choices
  • college courses
  • job searches
  • leisure activities

The team can also connect you with agencies that can help with other issues like:

  • benefits
  • health
  • housing

The Progress Team is made up of experienced careers advisers, known as progress advisers, with qualifications in Advice and Guidance to a minimum of NVQ Level 4.

The service works with young people who are not currently in education, employment or training after they've finished school and young people who may need additional support to stay on track after leaving New River College (our pupil referral unit) or its alternative provision. 

All of the information, advice and guidance that team members provide is completely independent and impartial. Confidentiality is important and no information about what is discussed will be shared with anyone else unless you agree, or if you are in danger.
