Help at hand after results day

Help is at hand for young people unsure about their future careers or wishing to change plans after their GCSE or A level results.

North Yorkshire County Council’s Youth Support Service, which offers information and advice about careers, learning and work for young people in North Yorkshire, is offering extra support at this potentially difficult time.



Advisers will be on hand in local youth support centre centres as well as schools and colleges to help with a range of issues including apprenticeship applications, writing CVs, interview techniques, college course details and job vacancies.

Young people and their parents will have the chance to talk through possibilities and opportunities if they want to change plans following their results or have nothing organised post-September.

County councillor Arthur Barker, North Yorkshire’s Executive Member for Youth Services said:

This period post examination results can be very challenging for young people, many of whom have to make difficult decisions about tertiary education, work training and job opportunities. Our youth service staff members have therefore put in additional support at this time to give young people and their families the best advice possible in making these decisions.
