Here we post local job opportunities plus a range of support service (see above) aimed at people either looking for work or needing support when at work.
As you may or may not be aware 16 of the eventual 24 T levels are now live with others being introduced over the coming years. T levels are likely to slowly supersede many study programmes (BTEC’s, etc) as Government aims to bring parity of study time / quality / UCAS points across all the main post-16 options (A levels, T Levels and Apprenticeships).
Employers in their own right need to be aware of new qualifications coming through the system which entry talent may soon possess but also be aware of the ask for employer engagement and support with the placements requirements.

National Careers Service Website
The National Careers Service website offers advice on the following: dealing with redundancy; advice for those aged 13-19; returning to work after having children; being an older worker; dealing with a criminal record; returning to work from long-term sickness/injury; working overseas; studying if you have a disability; and much more. Natalie, our Communications Apprentice, spent some time completing the Skills Health Check tools and found them very useful, accessible and easy to use.
