City of York Council education leaders are congratulating students who have received their A Level, T level and post 16 vocational results today (Thursday 17 August).
Cllr Bob Webb, City of York Council’s Executive Member for Children, Young People and Education said: “It’s fantastic to celebrate the achievements of the city’s young people today. For each young person these results are so important; show-casing hard work, dedication and personal achievement. I offer my congratulations to everyone who has got their results today.
“I hope that these qualifications will enable students to take the next stage on their skills development journey, whether that’s work, further or higher education, or other opportunities.
He also said “It’s also important to remember that help is at hand if your grades weren’t quite what you were hoping for. Speak to your school or college for more advice or check out the support available locally.”
Advice is also available for people considering apprenticeships or other employment opportunities, 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.
