Councillor Charlotte Carlyle, Cabinet member for Education, Skills and Children and Young People said:
“This is an exciting time for many of our young people, but we appreciate that it can also be an unsettling and anxious time. Understandably, the results they receive can cause some anxiety or confusion over the next steps. With exam results being unveiled over the next fortnight, the Youth Hub is a safe space where young people can drop in to receive advice and support that is right for them.
“Working in city-wide partnership, this service ensures that it brings all the opportunities together including careers advice, current apprenticeship and employment opportunities, better understanding of further study including further and higher education, training options, as well as pre-employability support such as CV writing.”
