New Post-16 Service (Bristol)
Ups and Downs southwest is extremely excited to have launched a new Post-16 Service. This service is here to provide information, advice and support to young people and their parents and carers in the Bristol area who are thinking about their Post-16, or Post-19, educational options.
We can support the young person for the whole journey: from providing up-to-date information about the choices available, visits to Further Education settings, making applications, attending meetings, such as Annual Review meetings and transition meetings, liaising with professionals, starting Further Education, and giving ongoing support.
We recognise that this service is much needed across all of the counties we serve, and we will be working hard to secure the funding to enable this to happen. The offer in Bristol is funded as part of our National Lottery Community Fund grant. By being able to start this service off in Bristol, it will enable us to capture the data needed to show the worth of this service therefore strengthening our case with any future grant applications.
You will find all the details on our Post-16 web page.
