In The Know – Young People geared for Success!
Young people may be feeling the pressure of being back in school but, if your child gets the right start to the academic year, it may feel much less daunting. This week we bring you three great opportunities to help young people get into right frame of mind about school and their future.

Youth Employment UK
If your child is aged 14-24, they have an opportunity to join Youth Employment UK on their website as a Volunteer Youth Ambassador or Young Professional. The website has tips, advice and competitions that match the interests of young people. Helping them build confidence and skills, they’ll be able to pursue the jobs they want. On the website there are also opportunities for apprenticeships and training. Find out more here.
The Association for Science Education (ASE) brings you, School Science, a free website to enrich learning in science. The website has resources for both primary and secondary school students.
