Training, apprenticeships and further education for young people

YOUNG PEOPLE from across the East Riding are invited to an event to find out more about training, apprenticeships and further education.

The event, which is being organised by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s youth support service, will be held at Choices at 2 Norwood, Beverley on Tuesday 3rd July 2012 between 11am and 2pm and is open to 15 to 19-year olds.

This will be an opportunity for young people to meet local training providers and colleges as well as receive information, advice and guidance from youth advisors on the wide range of opportunities available.

There will be stands and representatives from East Riding Adult Education, East Riding College, Hull College, East Riding Training, Hull Training, Bishop Burton College, YH Training, Motorvation Training, Princes’ Trust, QPD (forces preparation), as well as positive activities and volunteering advisers from the youth support service.

Councillor Julie Abraham, portfolio holder for children, young people and local authority schools at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “It is important that young people get independent information about what their choices are post 16 and this event will enable them to find that all that out under one roof. They will find an array of options and courses to suit all preferred styles of learning.”

Kevin Allen, youth support service manager at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “This is a great opportunity for young people from all over the East Riding to find out more information about what options are available to them after Year 11. There is no need to book; young people can just turn up either on their own or with parents or friends.”

Light refreshments will be provided and each unemployed young person who attends and completes a not in education, employment or training (NEET) survey, will receive a gift voucher.

For further information, contact Ellanor Hurst, youth advisor at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, on 01482 391300.
