SUPPORTING YOUNG PEOPLE
We offer a wide range of services for young people in Bath and the surrounding areas at Youth Connect South West. This page lists our main services but if you feel the support you need is missing get in touch and we will do our best to help you.
Targeted support is our service which focuses on 1:1 support. We cover a wide range of support including helping with; planning the next step from secondary school, troubles at home or in the family, issues at school including bullying and low attendance.
POST 16 FOLLOW UP
Every local authority in England has a statutory duty to report on the “destinations” (what young people are doing) of all young people for 2 academic years after they leave statutory education at the end of year 11. We do this for B&NES.
We support young people who are no longer in the education system and who are not working or being trained for work. The support is always unique to the young person.
OPEN ACCESS YOUTH WORK
We run a variety of open access services for young people including youth clubs, detached work, youth participation and small targeted group work.
MOBILE YOUTH WORK
Mobile work using the youth bus enables regular youth work activity in rural and urban areas. The Mobile bus gives youth workers a way to target areas where there is little or no provision for young people like no youth clubs.
LEARNING FOR WORK
Learning 4 Work is a course for young people with an Educational Health & Care Plan who would like to gain skills and experience for work but cannot do a mainstream college course.
Realising Talent is a programme funded by the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) to support young people in year 10 and 11 into a positive outcome post 16.
