Get sorted this September with Sheffield Futures

Sadie White No Comment

Sheffield Futures is running a ‘Get Sorted’ event on 5 September for 16-18 year olds who haven’t yet planned their next steps for further education, training or employment.

Young people who have just finished their exams or are aged 16 -18 and not currently in education, training or employment can come along to Star House on Division Street between 12 noon and 2pm to find out more about options.

Led by the Sheffield Training Provider network, training providers from across the region will be on hand to discuss the wide ranging options available and answer questions from parents and young people about their next steps.

Commenting on the opportunity for young people, Karen Challis, Head of Education and Employer Services says, ‘It’s fantastic to be able to offer this opportunity for young people to come in and talk to training providers from across the region about the options available to them going forward.’

‘It’s not just about the traditional routes into further education, there are lots of opportunities available, from further vocational or work related and life skills training to apprenticeships and college courses, so we really encourage young people and parents to come along and find options that are right for them.’

‘There are some really exciting opportunities, like the 12 week placement offered by South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue which involves being based in a state of the art fire station. The placement will focus on valuable life skills like teamwork, motivation and building confidence.’ She continues.

Get Sorted is on Thursday 5 September at Star House on Division Street between 12 noon and 2pm. Training providers in attendance include Sheffield College, CTS Training, Wildes Education Programme, Learning Curve, Pet Xi, Princes Trust Team Programme and South Yorkshire Police.

Sheffield Futures provides careers guidance and advice in schools across Sheffield and advisers will be available on the day.
