NexusGlos offers careers advice to young people
By Sarah Wood
GFirst LEP Education and Skills Team has launched the new NexusGlos portal, offering support to young people considering what their next or future steps might be.
Initially as a response to the Government's Annex B guidance around support for young people in years 11 and 13 with training, pastoral and transitions, the GFirst Education and Skills Team has developed the online portal with the aim of providing student support and guidance on their next steps and what the local offer is.
The wider scope of the portal will be to deliver a range of careers, employability and destination provision, and this content will continue to be developed and updated.
The www.NexusGlos.co.uk website has now been live for over a week, offering support to young people and signposting them to other useful sites.
The most recent addition to the site, in partnership with Adviza, is the opportunity to book a 1:1 careers, advice and guidance meeting with a qualified adviser. This is a free service and will be available until Thursday 8th July via the NexusGlos website, aimed at Gloucestershire students aged 11-19, specifically targeted at those who are considering their options or next steps, but open to all.
If you or someone you know is struggling to understand what their options and opportunities are and how to access them, then a careers meeting could be invaluable. To book, head to the NexusGlos website and click on 'not sure?'.
The team will continue to develop the NexusGlos portal over the summer and throughout the next academic year, populating the website with further resources and opportunities for young people in the county.
The aim for the future is to host virtual work experience/ insight days, industry focus weeks and live events within the platform. The site should become a hub for local students to explore their options and connect with providers, as well gaining insight and guidance on careers and employability and links to local business.
