Wiltshire Youth Hub launches at online event this week
The event is aimed at young people aged 16 to 24 who are currently not in education, employment or training
16-24 year olds are being encouraged to join a special live online broadcast this week as Wiltshire Council and Youth Hub partners encourage young people to consider their next move to employment or learning.
The event on Thursday 21 January will be live from 4pm and is aimed at young people aged 16 - 24 who are currently not in education, employment or training or unemployed who need inspiration to consider their next steps to employment and future learning.
Providers will share details of their local programmes or the support they can offer to young people. There will also be information on local apprenticeships. Training providers will be featured along with more information about employers planning to offer roles under the new Kick Start initiative. The interactive event will give young people a chance to ask questions directly to training providers, employers, colleges and speakers.
Wiltshire Council is hosting the online broadcast with partners including LearnLive and the Careers and Enterprise Company. As well as a chance to find out the latest opportunities there will also be the launch of the very first stage of the Wiltshire Youth Hub - a new one stop online shop for young people.
The new Youth Hub website Young Work Wiltshire pulls together key information in one place showing how young people can access support for further learning, training and employment.
Cllr Laura Mayes, Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Skills said:
I know young people are in a difficult climate at the moment and it can seem overwhelming to know where to turn for advice or what to do next. This online event is a real opportunity for those who are not in education, employment or training to find out more about what is on offer. It will also be a great chance to hear about the Wiltshire Youth Hub which means young people can look at just the one site to access key information and guidance they need.
