It’s a big day for so many of our young people today – and the message is: Support is out there.
City of York Council says: “For anyone who didn’t get the results they were hoping for, support is available across the city, for people who may be seeking an apprenticeship or other employment opportunity or for those wanting to move into full-time education.
“Young people who are concerned that their personal circumstances may make accessing education, employment or training more difficult could also benefit from advice.”
People can find support in York from:
- Their school. Teaching staff will be able to support pupils with their next steps.
- Careers Advisers employed by our schools
- Admissions teams at York College and Askham Bryan College
- National Careers Service – for local employment and training opportunities; or call the national help-line 0800 100 900
- Council-led ‘York Apprenticeship Hub’ – find us on Facebook @ York Apprenticeships; email the team here and find more at this web page for local apprenticeship vacancies. There are still around 50 opportunities in the city and many more in Leeds across a range of sectors and job roles and we can sign post you to agencies and training providers.
Information and advice is also available for school and college leavers here, which includes a handy ‘next steps’ factsheet for A Level or GCSE students, which explains many of the options available, including apprenticeships and further learning
Support is also available for anyone who is particularly worried about their results and next steps.
