Career Connect plays a valuable role at a local level, working with LAs and Schools, to work with those who are NEET or at risk of becoming NEET. They remain a useful vehicle for promoting programmes such as Study Programme, Traineeships and Apprenticeships.
It is clear that, even with resources such as LCR Learn, they are not as familiar as they might be with the range of providers and provision that exist locally. Also, they do not always possess information on who is the best person to talk to within a provider. To that end, and to ensure that Career Connect, have current information on providers and leads within the organisation, I am proposing to draft a provider and lead person list that can be used by Career Connect in conjunction with LCR Learn to help them provide advice on the range of providers and provision and, by extension, opportunities, that exist locally.
If you would like your organisation’s information to be shared with Career Connect then please send me details of a lead person within your organisation (name, phone and e-mail details) along with a statement confirming your consent to share this information with Career Connect only. This is to ensure compliance with GDPR rules. This will help them ensure that any referrals are channelled to the right person in a timely fashion.
This Career Connect NCS Update may be of interest to members who are working with or come across, individuals who require advice and guidance that you might not be able to offer at the moment
