Young Work Wiltshire: A new service has been launched that aims to support 16 & 17 year old’s who are not in education, employment or training.

Three dedicated Education, Employment Advisers will be getting alongside our young people to help them access opportunities to help them towards successful working lives. These young people may face multiple barriers preventing them from participating in EET and need a different type of support. For some young people support is provided by other Local Authority Teams, specifically the SEND service for young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and those working with the Youth Offending Team (YOT).  

Supporting documentation can be downloaded from this post

 

Young Work Wiltshire can provide one-to-one support for young people who need help to find the right opportunity for them. This currently provided over the phone and online, but eventually we hope to do some face to face/outreach support.  

This support includes: 

·         Engaging a young person in understanding the provision available 

·         Finding and applying for a suitable education or training course 

·         Finding and applying for an apprenticeship 

·         Support in transitioning to the new opportunity

·         Tracking & reducing the young people without a known post 16 destination.

Notes regarding July 2020 Parish Council Meeting

Despite the recent relaxation of the Lockdown Recommendations, including the opening of community and village halls, the Parish Council is still unable to hold public meetings whilst the Government’s restrictions on social distancing and meeting of groups of people indoors remain in place.

As a result, the meeting due to be held on Wednesday, July 1st will now not take place.

The Parish Council is investigating the various virtual conference platforms that are available, to enable a virtual meeting to take place at some point during July.

In the meantime, the Parish Council continues to operate with all functions being carried out remotely and via social distancing.

Please continue to use the Contact Us page on the website to inform the Parish Council of any issues or to seek our advice.

We will update the website and noticeboards with further information when it becomes available, so do please keep checking back regularly.
