Event to help young people find a career path
8:52am Monday 3rd December 2012 in Jobs News
AN EVENT is being held to help young people who are not in education, employment or training to see what opportunities are available to them.
The event, being run by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s youth support service is being held at Choices, Norwood, Beverley, tomorrow between 11am and 2pm.
There will be a chance for unemployed young people to meet local training providers and colleges as well as pick up information, advice and guidance from youth support staff on the wide range of the opportunities available.
Attending the event will be representatives from East Riding Adult Education, East Riding College, East Riding Training, Hull College, Bishop Burton College, YH Training, Hull Business Training Centre, Llite plus positive activities and volunteering advisors from East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Youth Support Service.
Senior youth advisor Ellanor Hurst said: “These providers have a range of training available to suit all needs. So if young people feel they are not ready for an apprenticeship there is no need to worry as many training providers offer foundation courses which help prepare for apprenticeships or higher-level courses.”
The event is free and all young people, their family, carers and friends are welcome to attend. Refreshments will also be available.
