Pupils unsure of next step after GCSEs can get help from Gloucestershire's Youth Support Team
AS YOUNG people across Gloucestershire find out their GCSE results on Thursday, the county council is urging pupils to seek help if the results were not as expected.
Whether students are celebrating because their results are better than they had hoped for, or are concerned because they were not quite as good as expected, Gloucestershire’s Youth Support Team is on hand to guide them.
The team is available to offer support about the options available to young people after receiving their GCSE results via their helpline 01452 426900 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Support will also be available from drop-ins around the county, including at Ryleaze Road in Stroud on Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 12.30pm to 3.30pm and Thursday from 4pm to 7pm throughout the year.
Prospects information, advice and guidance manager in Gloucestershire, Andrew Webster, said exam results can change a young person’s possibilities for the future immensely.
"Whether they’re lucky enough to have achieved better results than anticipated or concerned because they didn’t get the results required, many young people will be re-evaluating their options," he said.
"Finding out where to turn to get help with making or changing decisions on what training, education and ultimately which career to pursue can be daunting for young people.
"But the Gloucestershire Youth Support Team is here to help. Our team of experts provides support and impartial advice to help young people make the best decision for their future."
