Flying Start Southampton
STOP THE PRESS: EXAM SUPPORT UPDATE
Southampton’s Employment team are here to help! Follow them @sotoncareers
National Careers service: The Exam Results Helpline will be running this year from the 12th August until the 28th August from 8am until 10pm every day. Students, parents/carers and careers advisers will be able to access support by calling the helpline or speaking to an adviser on webchat, as well as on Twitter on @Exam_Helpline.
In addition to the Exam Results Helpline, the National Careers Service will be running a Virtual Careers Fair aimed at supporting young people who are looking for advice for their next steps after receiving their results. This will run over two days, Monday 24th August, aimed at 18 year-olds, and Tuesday 25th August, aimed at 16 year-olds, and will include live Q&A sessions with National Careers Service advisers, as well as content from a range of national and local organisations.
Flying Start Southampton is designed to help young people in year 11 plan and prepare for life, study, and work after school by providing resources to help make decisions about the next steps.
The end of year 11 has not been as any of us planned, and so it is really important that you plan and prepare to be ready for your next step – Flying Start is here to help.
If you’re unsure about what you want to do next, don’t worry! It’s not too late to decide – there’s lots of useful information on the following pages to help you do this.
If you already have a plan for September then the Flying Start programme has a range of information and activities for you to work through to make sure you’re ready and prepared.
Over the next few weeks, we will be adding more resources and links to help you, so make sure you check out the page regularly.
